A brilliant novel, and a masterpiece!
I've been reading several novels in the "Nero Wolfe" series, and "Some Buried Caesar" has come as a wonderful surprise and is now definitely one of my favorites. The perfectly balanced deployment of the plot, the careful construction of the characters (this is the story introducing Lily Rowan into the series) makes it one of the most accomplished works by Stout.Was this review helpful?

Though a little less striking, "The golden spiders" also comes with an uncommon point of view in the Wolfe novels, the presence of a young boy, seeking to learn ... of the detective work from the great Nero. The plot is brilliantly developed, and holds the reader gripped until the final twist.
A further pro in this edition is the large print.
