From the Publisher:
The sexes battle, the head feuds with emotions it cannot control, and crime extorts and strikes and kills but does not pay in this collection of stories by Rex Stout at the outset of his celebrated career in mystery and suspense. Again and again in these tales taken from the pages of the pulps that first published him, Stout proves himself a master of the sudden reversal and unexpected revelation as he probes the thwarted heart and criminal mind.
