Over My Dead Body by Rex Stout
When a Balkan beauty gets in trouble over some
missing diamonds, whom else can she turn to but the
world-famous Nero Wolfe? Especially since she claims
to be Wolfe's long lost daughter! The stakes are
suddenly raised when a student at this woman's
fencing school ends up dead after a pointed lesson.
As Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie, thrust and parry
into a tangle of documents, identities and
international intrigue, another student body turns
up, expertly skewered through the heart. Is Wolfe's
long lost daughter the black sheep of the family, a
hot-blooded mistress of murder?
