Target Practice

by Rex Stout

An invaluable sample of the early work of one of America's finest mystery writersDecades before detective Nero Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie Goodwin, first struck fear into the hearts of Manhattan's criminals, Rex Stout wrote fiction for All-Stories Magazine. By the time the Wolfe series brought him fame, Stout had put his early work behind him, and made no effort to preserve it. At the time of his death, these early mysteries and suspense stories were thought to be lost forever, but deep in the Library of Congress lay copies of the original magazine. Published for the first time in 1997, these early gems show a writer deploying all the humor, style, and clever plotting that would make Nero Wolfe a star. Included here are "Secrets," Stout's first mystery, "Target Practice," a story of World War I, and "Justice Ends at Home," whose main characters will look very familiar to fans of Nero and Archie.

Three at Wolfe's Door
