Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
It has been years since the orchid-growing eccentric Nero Wolfe has been outside his beloved home. This novel finds him in upstate New York with Archie Goodwin where he must endure poor food, uncomfortable chairs, warm beer, and three dead bodies. A family feud over the fate of a prize bull (send him to a stud farm or a steak house) plus tacky publicity stunts and blackmail all fit into the situation, told from Archie's point of view. Michael Prichard's reading is clear and adds to the atmosphere and overall enjoyment of the story. Recommended.--Denise A. Garofalo, Mid-Hudson Lib. System, Poughkeepsie, NY

    I'm a Nero Wolfe fan from now on.

    This was the first Nero Wolfe mystery that I have read, but I can safely say that I'm hooked. I enjoyed this book more than any mystery I've read to date. The characters are great, and I was kept on the edge of my seat the entire time. Get this book if you are a mystery fan. You won't be disappointed.
