I would have to say the Nero Wolfe novels are my favorite mystery series, even surpassing Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, and Miss Marple. But that's more for the characters of Wolfe and Archie and the rest of the gang. Not one of my top Wolfe novels, but closer to a true whodunnit than some of the others. Well worth the time.

I like Archie. Spending time with him is always enjoyable. This book gives you some insight of the mood of the country at the time the book was written. I have read several of Stout's books and found this one to be a "good read".
