Under the Andes
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 9 hours 38 minutes
Under the Andes is an intriguing precursor to Rex Stout's scores of marvelous Nero Wolfe mysteries.
Desiree Le Mire ran into the cave, anxious to explore, tempted by the legends of Inca gold. Harry Lamar and his brother Paul had no choice but to follow. After all, they could not let the beautiful dancer enter the black depths alone.
Others lived there, however, protecting the gold of their ancestors, others now misshapen after generations of living underground. That was why no one who entered the cave ever emerged into daylight. But no one who had entered was as beautiful as Desiree—or as determined as the Lamars.
"Rex Stout…raised detective fiction to the level of art. He gave us genius of at least two kinds, and a strong realist voice that was shot through with hope."—Walter Mosley, praise for Rex Stout
