Meet the Author

Widely regarded as one of America’s greatest mystery writers, Rex Stout (1886-1975) was the creator of the obese, orchid-loving, agoraphobic, egotistical, and brilliant detective, Nero Wolfe, and his wise-cracking sidekick, Archie Goodwin. The duo was featured in 33 novels and 39 novellas between 1934 and 1975, including books such as The Three Witnesses, The Doorbell Rang, and Over My Dead Body.

I love all the Nero Wolfe novels by Rex Stout, but I re-read this one with a little sadness. A young boy dies and no one but his mother seems to care, and she will spend the rest of her life without him. And when she's gone, no one will remember he existed. But the book itself is one of Stout's best, which I would say about all of his works. I re-read these novels or listen to the audiobooks about once a year, and reading the new introductions by many other authors makes them even better. I recommend not only buying this novel, but all of Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe novels.

A kid gets killed by a hit-and-run driver. He had talked to Nero Wolfe a couple of days before. This opens up an investigation that leads to something huge. Also we get to see Archie, Fred, Saul and Orrie as the men of action that we know they are, but rarely see. One of my top Wolfe novels.

One of Rex Stout's more clever stories, skillfully narrated by Michael Pritchard. The real humor and character of Archie Goodwin appears through this edition.

One of the classic Nero Wolfe books. The murder of a 12 year old boy that Archie asks to dinner prompts Wolfe to accept a $10,000 fee to investigate for a woman that ends up dead. A crowd of suspects, and you'll never guess which one!
