The Silent Speaker is a Nero Wolfe detective novel by Rex Stout, first published by the Viking Press in 1946. It was published just after World War II, and key plot elements reflect the lingering effects of the war: housing shortages and restrictions on consumer goods, including government regulation of prices. The Silent Speaker was Stout's first full-length Nero Wolfe novel since Where There's a Will in 1940.
