Curtains for Three is a collection of 3 Nero Wlfe novellas written by Rex Stout in 1948, 1949 and 1950. I'm working my way through the series. I'm actually more familiar with the TV series, and am enjoying reading the books.
from the back of the book:
A murder weapon that wouldn't lie down and stay put... an opera star who could only whisper... a posse on horseback chasing a killer through New York's Central Park... a desperate girl with so many aliases she'd almost forgotten who she really was.
A stellar triple bill of mayhem and mystery featuring Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin.
I'm not finding much in the way of online reviews, but the series is a classic and the books make for fun, light reading.
