There was no reason why I shouldn't have been sent for the beer that day, for the last ends of the Fairmont National Bank case had been gathered in the week before and there was nothing for me to do but errands, and Wolfe never hesitated about running me down to Murray Street for a can of shoe-polish if he happened to need one. But it was Fritz who was sent for the beer. (from the first line)

From the Publisher:
As any herpetologist will tell you, the fer-de-lance is among the most dreaded snakes known to man. When someone makes a present of one to Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin knows hes getting dreadully close to solving the devilishly clever murders of an immigrant and a college president. As for Wolfe, hes playing snake charmer in a case with more twists than an anaconda -- whistling a seductive tune he hopes will catch a killer who's still got poison in his heart.Nero Wolfe, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth, returns--with his perambulatory man-about-town Archie Goodwin in tow--playing snake charmer in a case with more twists than an anaconda, and hoping to catch a killer who's still got poison in his heart.
Annotation:
The first book in Rex Stout's world-famous Nero Wolfe mystery series introduces us to the hedonistic genius detective and his trusty assistant Archie Givens as they search for the killer of a beautiful--and wealthy--woman's brother.
Author Bio
Rex Stout
Rex Stout was born in Noblesville, Indiana but moved shorty afterwards with his Quaker parents to Topeka, Kansas. The state spelling champion at the age of 13, Stout went to high school and college in Kansas but abandoned his studies at the University of Kansas to join the U. S. Navy, serving from 1906 to 1908 on President Theodore Roosevelt's yacht. Having worked a variety of odd jobs after leaving the Navy--including bookkeeper, sales clerk, hotel manager, and store clerk--Stout began churning out short stories for pulp magazines. He dabbled in romance, science fiction, adventure, and mystery until finally devoting his energies exclusively towards the latter in 1938. His famed detective, Nero Wolfe, first appeared in 1934 in "Fer-de-Lance", and soon became a staple figure in Stout's fiction. A rotund and eccentric man, Wolfe has been featured in two radio series, numerous feature films, and a television series that began in 1981 starring William Conrad. While continuing to write Wolfe novels, Stout became politically active in his later years, championing liberal and patriotic causes during World War II and afterwards.
