Trio for Blunt Instruments, Rex Stout

Three novellas featuring Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin and the rest of the gang. What’s new here is that Stout is beginning to speak forthrightly about sex. In earlier books, he’d been cunningly vague about sexual motivation or Archie’s contact with women. Here, in stories written in the early 1960s, Stout first mentions pregnancy outside of marriage.
