Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prisoner's Base finds Nero Wolfe's legman Archie guilt-ridden and seeking the detective's help. Three women have been murdered, one a towel company heiress. Is her fortune-hunting husband involved, or were greedy business associates behind her death? As usual Wolfe's sleuthing talents puzzle out the truth. Michael Pritchard's clear, strong, and pleasant reading supports the tale and helps keep the atmosphere charged. Entertaining and suspenseful; recommended. Denise A. Garofalo, Mid-Hudson Lib.

I just finished this excellent mystery. I've seen the A&E adaptation of Prisoner's Base and it was fantastic so then I wanted to get the book. I finally obtained the book and read it. I won't spoil the story for you but this mystery contains: mystery, suspense, emotion of the victims who were killed, and this mystery goes way into depth between Nero Wolfe & Archie Goodwin's relationship in the Brownstone. Just to start you it out there are 2 murders and all of them die the same way: hit over the head and strangled with a cord. When the 3rd murder occurs it brings lots of emotion. This is one of the best mysteries Rex Stout has ever devised in his Nero Wolfe series. Don't miss out reading this great, fantastic, suspenseful Nero Wolfe mystery!! Read it, you will LOVE it!!

I love all the Rex Stout Nero Wolfe/Archie Goodwin books. Some are better than others; but there is just something so special about all the relationships in the Wolfe household and the regulars who come in like Cramer, Cather and Panzer. This one is especially recommended.
