    A Classic Series

    Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe is one of the most wonderful characters in detective fiction (or any fiction for that matter). Stout's atmosphere and characterization make all of his Wolfe novels a delight, but 'And Be a Villain' begins a wonderful trilogy of mysteries featuring Wolfe's most dangerous villain, Arnold Zeck.

    Wolfe vs his "Moriarty"

    This is the first in a series of 3 where Wolfe confronts his own version of Moriarty. Very well plotted and, of course, told in Archie's own style. One of the best of the Wolfe novels. In addition to the characterization, plot is very good also.

    Good but something missing

    With Nero Wolfe, the reader is familiar with a certain opacity in the story. As events move along, you only get very quick and occasional glimpses into the thoughts of Wolfe and how the ultimate resolution of the mystery might occur. "And Be A Villain" takes this opacity to an even higher level. The reader is almost surprised to find him or herself at the conclusion. The characters are excellently drawn as always and the mystery itself is delightful in its difficulties but the total veil drawn between the reader and the path to the solution takes a certain measure of pleasure from its resolution. That is not to say that "And Be a Villain" is not worthy of reading or addition to the library of any fan of mysteries or that of Stout's Wolfe. The joy of watching Archie and Wolfe interact and the subtle and skillful maneuvers of both are always a pleasure. Still, given the breadth of choices for a discerning fan of Wolfe, this is only good and not great.

    Radio Days Revisited!

    The golden age of radio comes to book form in this novel of mayhem in a manhattan radio studio. The murder takes place as five people look on, is it switching glasses or switching hearts in the studio? One doesn't know but Nero Wolfe's little grey cells fire up as his villain makes his life a living hell.Zeck is seen a little but the women rule the roost, in a radio days smash. The sorry thing is Bantam Books will not be republishing Nero Wolfe Books any time soon so stock up on what you can get. 66 books are unavailable.
