Overview

When evil strikes a loved one, it can make us crazy. We can't think rationally enough to get revenge ourselves, so we shouldn't. But Nero Wolfe ignores reason when someone guns down a close friend in cold blood. He vows to collar the killer personally, and it thrusts him into the gravest danger of his career.

The case takes him 4,000 miles across the ocean to the hazardous mountains of Montenegro, where Communist cutthroats have also disposed of Wolfe's adopted daughter. Now they zero in on the world-famous detective himself.

"Typically grand thrills from Rex Stout. Nero Wolfe has entered our folklore." (New York Times)

an adventure into Wolfe's past. To track down the killer of his boyhood friend, Wolfe, with Archie at his side, returns to Montenegro and Yugoslavia. This book, especially, raised my interest in the Balkan region. Not so much a whodunnit, but how-are-we-going-to bring- him-to justice story. A must for Wolfe fans.

Archie and his boss travel to Nero's homeland to fulfill a duty Nero feels for his friend Marko. The depth of responsibility demonstrated in this book unheard of in today's society. Archie has to adjust to several language barriers and you can sense his funny frustration throughout the book.

Nero Wolfe leaves not only the brownstone, he leaves the country in his hunt for a killer. Great read by a great author.
