Rex Todhunter Stout (/staʊt/; December 1, 1886 – October 27, 1975) was an American writer noted for his detective fiction. His best-known characters are the detective Nero Wolfe and his assistant Archie Goodwin, who were featured in 33 novels and 39 novellas between 1934 and 1975. In 1959, Stout received the Mystery Writers of America's Grand Master Award.

This is a bibliography of works by or about the American writer Rex Stout (December 1, 1886 – October 27, 1975), an American writer noted for his detective fiction. He began his literary career in the 1910s, writing more than 40 stories that appeared primarily in pulp magazines between 1912 and 1918. He wrote no fiction for more than a decade, until the late 1920s, when he had saved enough money through his business activities to write when and what he pleased.

Rex Stout (1 December 1886 – 27 October 1975) was an American author of detective fiction most famous as the creator of the fictional detective Nero Wolfe. He was also prominent in the allied efforts of World War II as the announcer of the wartime radio broadcasts of Our Secret Weapon. There are various ways to call a man a liar. One way is just to scream it at him, which doesn't prove anything. Another is to establish facts by long and patient investigation

Invitation to Murder, a man hires Wolfe to find a way to get part of the money from his late sister's estate. Archie is dispatched to try a plausible story in order to question the suspects, but he discovers his client has been murdered. It's up to Wolfe to find out who did it.

The Zero Clue is a very interesting puzzle. A murdered man left a vague clue by arranging a group of pencils on the desktop. Everyone has misinterpreted what the clue meant, but Wolfe and the police spend hours questioning the six suspects. Finally Wolfe realizes what the clue really meant and is able to follow the path to the murderer.

Although it's a strange title, This Won't Kill You, the tale revolves around the New York Giants losing the World Series due to several of the team being drugged. While dealing with that it is also revealed that a member of the team has been killed and left in a closet. As hard as it is to believe, Wolfe and Archie had been at the baseball game and are hired to find out who drugged the team. It's a race to follow the slight clues available to solve the mystery.

All three were good mysteries. I am a devoted fan of Rex Stout and am once again rereading all of these stories in the order they were written. It is very satisfying to follow the development and interactions of all the regular characters, however these three involved only Wolfe and Archie. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.
This is one of Stout's novellas, and it's good. Yes, the mystery itself and it's solution are a little thin (in that one of the mysteries is solved right away and you don't get a chance to try & solve it yourself, and the other one is one you could pretty much never solve yourself, because there are no real clues), as is true in many of Stout's books. However, the plot is fun and exciting, many of the characters are interesting, and the stakes are incredible. Also, it's on of the few cases that Archie, not Nero Wolfe, solves (well, at least he solves one of the mysteries--there are two, but spoiler alert!, they turn out to be related). The only part I would change is the fact that, as in many of Stout's books, there are too many characters and a lot of them have almost no personality (or at least that Stout tells us about). The characters he does choose to go into a little bit of detail about could still use a little more personality--do they talk a certain way, have a certain type of humor, are they smart, sarcastic, etc. Still, this is a fun little book, and I think most people will enjoy it, especially if you're a Nero Wolfe fan.
Jacques Barzun said that Archie Goodwin was a 20th century Huck Finn, and one of the most memorable characters in American literature. Years ago, I picked up this slim volume of three novellas at a used bookstore, and it was my introduction to Archie, Nero and the gang. I savored the writing, fell in love with the characters, and was entertained by the plots. The author’s love of language is hard to miss. Barzun also said about Rex Stout, “If he had done nothing more than to create Archie Goodwin, Rex Stout would deserve the gratitude of whatever assessors watch over the prosperity of American literature.” With apologies to Mr. Barzun, if “Three Men Out” had done nothing more than to introduce me to Archie Goodwin, it would deserve my gratitude. It has it. It’s witty, clever and written with panache.
Rex Stout's "Three Men Out" (1954) is the 23rd book in his "Nero Wolfe" series. This one is not a novel. It's another collection of three short stories: 1) "Invitation to Murder" (1953), 2) "The Zero Clue" (1953), and 3) "This Won't Kill You" (1952). The first of those short stories is very good. It's written in good Stout/Wolfe form with a good plot and mystery. The second story, is OK. The premise of what the people in the story are doing is a bit silly and the mystery a bit weak, but it's still good Stout/Wolfe. But, the third story is pretty bad. Most of it reads like a Crime Drama instead of a Mystery. But, the biggest issue I have with it is how everything falls in line for the solution. It's pretty trite and just doesn't read like what we'd expect from a Stout/Wolfe story. So, averaging the scores, I get an OK 3 stars out of 5 for the book.
I thought I had read all of the Nero Wolfe stories by Rex Stout. These were 3 new stories to me. The context is NYC in the 1950s or about 60 years ago. So there are anomalies. For example, baseball is still played by the NY Giants in NYC although they are now located in San Francisco, and that NYC location for them is the setting for one of the stories. However, the usual characters, Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin his mobile assistant, and Inspector Cramer, NYC police, are present and play their usual roles with the sort of variation that makes me love this series. There are the usual potential nasties. For example, In the first story there is a poisoning alleged with regard to one of three women. Poisoning of a man who owns the house and monies and who is in a wheelchair and cannot leave the house. I high recommend these short stories for anyone who can (as I can) overlook the anomalies and enjoys the interaction of the main characters with different situations.
I thought it was about three men but it is three short stories and about three different guys not all in one story. Three stories are good. Nice to read while waiting for someone. As usual I did not get one bad guy right and in last story did not even have a clue. I think there must be clues in the stories and I just don't get them. Only one murder mystery did I ever get it first. That was another author. At any rate enjoyed the stories. Liked I could read them in one sitting. Thoroughly enjoyable reads. Highly recommend them.
