Three Nero Wolfe cases are presented. The first is Man Alive. A young woman asks Wolfe to find her uncle who supposedly committed suicide a year ago but she is sure she saw him. When the uncle is actually killed at the business the woman is the chief suspect. Three deaths have occurred to those associated with the business - two accidents and a supposed suicide turned murder. Wolfe is suspicious. The second case is Omit Flowers. Nero Wolfe is approached by a friend, a wonderful cook, who has been arrested for murder. The friend swears he didn't do it but circumstantial evidence indicate that he could be guilty. Wolfe believes his friend and takes the case free. The murdered man is the husband of a woman who owns a chain of restaurants called Ambrosia, her second husband. The woman has declared that he will run the restaurants as her first husband did but he has no experience. Who did the murder? The cook, one of several children, the wife or the former girlfriend. The third tale was called Door to Death. Nero Wolfe is looking for someone to care for his exotic flowers - one of the few passions which will bring him out of his home. When he finds the man he wants, he finds that the man is accused of murdering the woman he plans to marry. The Pitcairns, who employ him, are perfectly willing to let him suffer the consequences. However, Wolfe, works to prove the man's innocence so he can take care of the exotic flowers. Suspects include the other servants, an assistant gardener, and all of the Pitcairn family. All in all these tales were fun to read.
