The funniest Nero Wolfe novel; it makes you laugh after first several phrases. As everybody who read any Nero Wolfe mystery knows, the famous detective is really afraid of cars and expects to get into accident at any second during car rides.

I also learned a new word on the very first page--plerophory...

Once again, Wolfe & Archie are away from home in this 6th entry in the series! This time, Wolfe is visiting upstate NY in order to participate in a flower show (so his orchids can beat those of a rival who cowardly avoided the NYC flower shows). Of course, they get involved in a death or two...

They never get old and I never get bored with them. Some Buried Caesar is the sixth book in the series by Rex Stout. For those who are unfa...
