"Two dozen literary tributes to one of crime fiction's best-loved private detectives and his Man Friday.

Estleman; chapters from Robert Goldsborough's authorized continuation of the Wolfe series, Marion Mainwaring's 1955 tour de force Murder in Pastiche, and John Lescroart's Rasputin's Revenge, which reimagines a young Wolfe as the son of Sherlock Holmes. Also featuring a reminiscence from Rex Stout's daughter, this is a treasury of witty and suspenseful crime writing for every fan of the portly private detective"--Provided by publisher.
