Homicide Trinity consists of three of Rex Stout's many novellas: Eeny Meeny Murder Mo, Death of a Demon, and Counterfeit for Murder. I enjoyed all three but liked Counterfeit for Murder best with a somewhat unusual client in Hattie Annis for Nero Wolfe. In fact, all three had unusual clients which added interest to the stories.

The book consists of three novellas; Eeny Meeny, Murder, Mo; Death of a Demon; Counterfeit for Murder. I'd never read any, though I had seen the episode of Eeny, Meeny in the brilliant Nero Wolfe series A&E produced in the 90s. (If you are a Nero Wolfe fan, and have never seen it, RUN to YouTube and watch all 25 videos. I can't read a Nero Wolfe now without hearing Timothy Hutton nail his Archie Goodwin performance - and the show sticks religiously to the books, almost word for word.)
As to these novellas, they are as good as is usual for Rex Stout, and as flawed as any book written in 30 days without editing. I identify with Archie in that I can rarely figure out whodunnit until the denoument, or in rare cases, just before it. One thing these three have in common is that Nero is forced into each case by circumstances and his - and Archie's - rules of behavior. I did enjoy them. ( )

Another of Stout's collections of 3 novellas: "Eeny Meeny Murder Mo", "Death of a Demon" and "Counterfeit for Murder"

I enjoyed all 3 of these stories but I think that "Eeny Meeny Murder Mo" was the best. I listened to the digital audiobook from the library & Michael Pritchard does a great narration (though the digital file was clearly made from the original audio cassettes because in a few places, they forgot to edit out the "This is the end of cassette #1. Please turn over this cassette to continue listening."!). ( )

Thiscontains three stories, "Eeny, Meeny, Murder, MO" in which a legal secretary comes to Wolfe's office to report tat she has seen a member of the law firm for which she works meeting with an opposing client in an important divorce case. Wolfe normally will not touch divorce, and when Archie goes to talk him into taking the case --leaving the secretary behind --Wolfe still insists on refusing the case. But then they come down to find the secretary has been strangled with Wolfe's own tie 9which he had taken off for cleaning). So Wolfe is on the case after all. The second case involves a woman who wants to show Wolfe the gun she is not going to shoot her husband with. Unfortunately, her husband has already been shot. The third case "Counterfeit for Murder" involves a charmingly eccentric owner of a rooming house for struggling actors who has found a batch of counterfeit onery in her house. In this version, she survives an attempt at homicide by car, but in another version (posthumously printed in Death Times Three) she is killed. Oddly, the introduction to Death Times Three talks as if the version in that collection is the one in wcich she survives. ( )

It's official: Hattie Annis is the greatest character in the Wolfe canon. The other two stories were pretty good, too. ( )

I was standing there in the office with my hands in my pockets, glaring down at the necktie on Nero Wolfe's desk, when the doorbell rang.
