If Death Ever Slept

If Death Ever Slept

Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.

Murder lurks in the wings of the sprawling Fifth Avenue penthouse of multimillionaire Otis Jarrell, who has just retained the incomparable Nero Wolfe on a case of the utmost confidentiality. But even the master detective cannot prevent tragedy when it inevitably arrives wielding Jarrell’s missing revolver. Soon a second victim meets his maker, and Wolfe must piece together the truth behind Jarrell’s scandalously ill-behaved family. And for one member of that charmed circle—a two-time killer sleeping the fitful sleep of the guilty—it could prove a deadly awakening.

"This beautiful book will prove irresistible to both serious collectors of detective fiction first editions as well as to lovers of the artwork of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. A nostalgic survey of the artwork of detective fiction dustwrappers, it features intriguing chapters such as 'Damsels in Distress', 'Murder on the Move' and 'Pastimes in Purgatory'." "Lavishly illustrated with a 12 page colour section and over 300 large black and white illustrations, this book provides a unique opportunity to see first edition dustwrappers rarely available to the public. The wrappers are fully described, dated with credit to the publisher and the artist, if known. A wide range of famous detective writers is represented along with their detectives. Included in this fascinating volume is a chapter devoted solely to the artists, a consideration of their styles, and references to further examples of their work."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

A new edition of the who's who of over 1,400 fictional characters whose names are sometimes so familiar it's difficult to remember they're imaginary. Included in the biographical parade is Ben Casey, Casper, and Fitzwilliam Darcy, a compendium of high, low, and no brow at all, each exactly recorded with a snippet of biographical anecdote. The reference is as equally useful for scholarly work as it is for killing time in aimless pursuits of information. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
