Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This mosaic of extortion, murder, greedy agents, and depressed authors is set against a background of the publishing world. For the past four years unsuccessful authors have accused best-selling writers of plagiarism-and an out-of-court resolution is at hand for each. This time a joint committee of two literature/book-selling associations approach Nero Wolfe to investigate the latest accusation, against author Amy Wynn. After examining all the material, Wolfe determines that, based on literary style, the same person wrote all the involved materials, albeit on different typewriters. Then the bodies start to drop, with Wolfe's legman Archie Goodwin conveniently discovering them. Lots of Wolfe-temperament (including swearing in Serbo-Croatian), some witty touches in the construction of the crimes, and a clear, crisp reading by Michael Prichard combine to hold the listener's interest. Recommended.-Denise A. Garofalo, Astor Home for Children, Rhinebeck, NY Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Good Nero Wolfe yarn, but this ebook version has annoying typos. Any longtime fan of the series knows Orrie's last name: Cather. In this ebook he is called Orrie Gather, an obvious spell-checker error that a human copyeditor should have caught. There are a few other such, but this one annoyed me the most. As Wolfe would say, plfui!
