Death of a Doxy, by Rex Stout


A classic. Nero Wolfe is always enjoyable, but I think Julie Jaquette really makes this one. It's nice to see that Wolfe's general distaste for women is not necessarily universal. (Other highlights include Minna Ballou and her wolfhounds and the epithon). Also, there's a certain amount of (likely unintentional) foreshadowing for the also excellent A Family Affair.
