A RIGHT TO DIE. Rex Stout.


New York: The Viking Press, [1964]. Octavo, cloth backed boards. First edition. A Nero Wolfe mystery novel. "The present mystery is directly linked to one of 25 years ago, Too Many Cooks, by the person of Paul Whipple, the young Negro who had helped solve it. Whipple, now a middle-aged professor of anthropology, comes to Nero Wolfe seeking help for himself. His thoroughly topical problem involves his son, an active worker in the civil rights movement, who has become engaged to a white girl. Her murder leads to Archie's active involvement and a second murder brings on a really surprise ending presided over by the nimitable Wolfe. Today's headlines, stoutly, adroitly handled." - Kirkus Review, 1 October, 1964. Hubin, pp. 777-778. Townsend, Rex Stout: An Annotated and Secondary Bibliography, A45a.
