Nero Wolfe, "the grand master of detection" will always solve the unsolvable. But before he does his loyal legman - Archie Goodwin - will do all the hard work and take all the chances. He also must convince Mr. Wolfe to take the case and convince all the suspects that they have to go to Mr. Wolfe's townhouse for questions from the great detective. In-between expect to find out about Mr. Wolfe's Manhattan townhouse complete with five star cook, Gardenias that Mr. Wolfe is obsessed with and the best cup of coffee in town. I must confess I am a little envious of Mr. Wolfe's lifestyle and do enjoy reading about the great detective living the good life. I like my books to have a little more edge, but if you want to read a classic detective novel then any Nero Wolfe novel is worth reading.

I like all of the Nero Wolfe novels and am working my way through the series. I only wish there were more. This one, like all of them, is a wonderful bedtime relaxation.

I admit, the casual racism in this book made it a difficult read. I didn't like it. I know Nero Wolfe is a misogynist, and for some reason that doesn't bother me the way the general racial over and undertones did. I don't recommend this one.

[So, my mom wanted her tablet back so I'm now using my nook hd that's under a different account so that's why there's two posts by me. Also, Merry Christmas!] Whisper opened her eyes quickly and leaned back. "I'm so sorry," she said, awkwardly standing.
