Woweee! What a challenge: What a villain! What a book! A $100,000 retainer persuades Nero Wolfe to take on the most elusive opponent of his career--none other than the untouchables of the F.B.I. His sweet little old public-spirited rich lady client has sent ten thousand copies of FBI NOBODY KNOWS (kind of a Naked Society's G-string) to people in high places and now finds herself the victim of a Big-Brother type persecution. Wolfe is hired to stop it. But the FBEye is everywhere so how? We'll never tell. So read it.

The Doorbell Rang is a Nero Wolfe detective novel by Rex Stout, first published by the Viking Press in 1965.
