      I like Nero Wolfe stories pretty well, but if we are going to consider him hardboiled, then we owe big apologies to Sue Grafton. We also need to schedule some nice, tough Margery Allingham on the reading list. I mean, this stuff is as cozy as they come, right down to the eccentric detective, the preposterous clues, and the obsession for food/flowers. I actually thought that Philo Vance, Miss Marple, and Wolfe kind of defined the genre.
