    Book Description
    In this novel, considered one of the liveliest Rex Stout titles, detective Nero Wolfe delves into the literary world to discover why a group of distinguished authors and publishers has been framed and accused of plagiarism ... and more. Listeners who are curious about publishing will enjoy a host of barbed stereotypes: suffering publishers, greedy agents, depressed authors — interwoven with extortion, threats, and murder.


    Reader Reviews
    2 of 2 people found the following review helpful: Brilliant Behemoth Bungles Badly, Barely Bags Badguy, May 2, 2003 Reviewer: George R. (Bob) Dekle, Sr. from Lake City, FL USA Nero Wolfe has few peers when it comes to figuring out whodunnit. He is without equal in concocting Byzantine plots designed to trick the badguy into a trap. In this book, however, he is as dumb as a doorpost when it comes to foreseeing the mayhem resulting from his activities. As a result, three people die. Wolfe's self-esteem is so battered, he swears off beer and meat until he lays the killer by the heels. There are zero clues to the killer's identity, and the best efforts of Inspector Cramer, Purley Stebbins, and a host of NYPD officers cannot unravel the mystery. Unable to solve the murders by direct means, Wolfe decides that solving the case he was originally hired to investigate (a serial plagiarism case) will bring the killer to justice. Wolfe and Goodwin explore the world of authorship and publishing (a world well-known to Stout), both failing to see the obvious key to cracking the case. When Wolfe discovers the key, he sets a plan in motion designed to unfailingly identify the killer. When the plan miscarries, Archie is crestfallen, but Wolfe starts making plans to order a steak. And then . . . "Plot it Yourself" presents one of Stout's more labyrinthine plots, and some loose ends are still dangling as the curtain falls, but he still serves up a satisfying solution.
