The broken vase Paperback – August 1, 1982. by Rex STOUT (Author). Book 3 of 3 in the Tecumseh Fox Series.

The broken vase Paperback – August 1, 1982.

Don't judge Rex Stout's writing on this little book. I have read and enjoyed all three of the Tecumseh Fox novels (Double for Death, Broken Vase, & Bad for Business (orig. version of the Wolfe Tingley Tidbits short story)). The Fox novels are very good. One person found this helpful. Fox reminds me of the male protagonist in the Thin Man.

The Broken Vase book. I've been reading some Nero Wolfe by Rex Stout who wrote from the 1930's to 1970's and this was not Nero but quite a good . named Tecumseh Fox. This was the last of three Stout wrote so apparently he enjoyed writing about Wolfe more than Fox. It's got a great plot, and loads of characters any one of which could be the one who 'du Oh my, forget about taking a break to read a slim little paperback, good, I hope, but without many complications and characters. Well, this one wasn't it.

Reviews:
  • Roram
A Tecumseh Fox mystery. Not Nero Wolfe. I think it was early in his writing career. The conversations are awkward and much of the staging is painful.

  • Ballazan
Stout at his prime!
  • Kefym
Not nearly as good as the Nero Wolfe books.
  • Zbr
not as good as his other works
  • Brightcaster
Since I am a huge Nero Wolfe fan, I wanted to read Stout's earlier series and I found it interesting, but...I can see why it didn't go over so well... I'll stick with the Wolfe series.
  • Thoginn
One of Rex Stout's best. This is one of the best plotted of the ten or so Nero Wolfe mysteries that I have read.

I have read and enjoyed all three of the Tecumseh Fox novels (Double for Death, Broken Vase, & Bad for Business (orig. version of the Wolfe Tingley Tidbits short story)). The Broken Vase is one of my favorites. The Fox novels are very good. Fox reminds me of the male protagonist in the Thin Man. Fox is very entertaining, suave and wealthy and is surrounded by a coterie of very, funny oddballs. In a sense, he is Archie's elder precursor. Stout somehow communicates his suaveness, sophistication and elegance. Fox is very much a man about the town and a man in charge.

I strongly recommend all of the Fox novels to Wolfe fans and anyone who likes a well-written and entertaining 1940's detective mystery. Stout offered us a rich universe of detective fiction. It'd be silly not to avail oneself of hours of reading pleasure.

I can guarantee you'll enjoy them each novel and maybe feel as grateful as I did. Discovering new detective novels by Rex Stout is wonderful! They are equally as good as the Wolfe Cannon.

FOR YOUR INFO
For die hard and craving Wolfe fans, Stout wrote two special novels featuring detectives from the Wolfe Cannon. I haven't read the Inspector Cramer (Red Threads) or Doll Bonner (The Hand in the Glove) novels but I tried each briefly and was tempted away by another book.
I read my first Rex Stout story over 70 years ago and fell in love with his characters.
This story is just as compelling today as it was in the 40's. I recommend finding and reading all Stout's stories, I have!
