A reprint of The Rubber Band with a new title and very misleadiing blurb ""She was the big shot's mistress, whom the cops wanted for grand larceny" --actually, she tells Wolfe the big shot in question was not enjoying what he called "the usufructs of gallantry" --for a further review see the original title.

Stout is one of the great masters of the genre, and this one fits right in with the rest. Great dialogue, fast pacing, believable characters. Even the solution, while outdated of course, is fun! ( )

Good one! Rex Stout is great and Michael Prichard really brings him to life. ( )

A killing 40 years ago, an arranged escape, and a debt to the arrangers leads to Nero Wolfe. ( )

One of the best Wolfes. Good fun and an actual mystery that you can figure out! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553763091, Paperback)

In all his years of detecting, the unflappable Nero Wolfe has never encountered an investigation as damnably messy as this one. For what began as a clean case of larceny quickly sank into a quagmire of blackmail and broken promises, international scandal and cold-blooded murder.

Now Wolfe and his assistant, Archie Goodwin must bridge eras and oceans to find the link between a Wild West lynching and a respected British peer. Only then can they save Wolfe's beautiful young client -- and a hotly disputed stake of a cool million dollars.
