Words

Most of these words are words I encountered while reading Rex Stout novels. To be more specific, perhaps 70 out of these 80 words are words I encountered while reading the Stout novels: And Be a Villain, Trouble in Triplicate, The Second Confession, Three Doors to Death, In the Best Families, Curtains for Three, Murder by the Book, Triple Jeopardy, Prisoner’s Base, and The Golden Spiders.

A few of the words are words which I have also included in previous posts of this kind, but the great majority of the words included are words which I have not previously blogged.
