Overview

Cheaters never prosper, but Nero Wolfe encounters one who kills trying. At the Pour Amour perfume riddle contest, a million dollars goes to the contestant who can answer five questions. Someone doesn't like the heat of competition, so he murders the contest founder and steals the answers to the riddles. Now Wolfe has to sniff down a trail of clues that leads disturbingly close to home.

"Nothing is quite as sweet as Nero Wolfe solving a mystery." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The death of advertising executive Louis Dahlmann during his perfume contest final starts the sleuthing in Before Midnight. It seems the advertising firm is concerned more with the contestant's missing answers than with the murderer, and Nero is needed once again. The juxtaposition of woman-hating Nero involved with perfume and the hysterical advertising firm is an interesting combination. The characterizations of the contestants also add to the aroma of this satisfying story, all leading up to a climactic confrontation in Nero's office and an unexpected ending. Both titles, well read by Michael Prichard, are recommended.-Denise A. Garofalo, Astor Home for Children, Rhinebeck, NY Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Before Midnight is one of the best Nero Wolfe mysteries. Great plotting, good characters, and a mystery that pleases. An interesting group of contest winners match wits with Wolfe and Goodwin, in a mystery with a deadline.
