    Highly recommended

    If you like mysteries you have got to like Archie Goodwin's tales of Nero Wolfe. Suspenseful, at times chaotic, always irreverent, well worth the read. I will eventually get them all simply because they're a good read.

    A Dark Nero Wolfe Mystery

    This is an excellent read and contains a lot of characterization. You will find a lot of memorable parts in the book and you will never forget the memorable parts in this Nero Wolfe book. The story begins with a goverment offical (Director of the BPR) name Cheney Boone who is killed before making his speech at a hotel ballroom. In the crowd are tons of people who belong to the NIA. Wolfe, who needs money solves this case. Read it and you will enjoy it. Once Inspector Ash replaces Inspector Cramer the memorable parts begin.

    AN EXUBERANT READING

    Nero Wolfe is surely one of the most beloved and fully imagined fictional detectives to be found. So, it is with great enthusiasm that I can now turn to a favorite story in audio book form. Michael Prichard, who was named one of Smart Money's Top Ten Golden Voices, gives an exuberant reading, adding another dimension to Archie Goodwin, Wolfe's aide. Fans will remember that with 'The Silent Speaker' Wolfe is, to say the least, in need of cash. Therefore, when a government honcho doesn't show up for a scheduled speech but instead shows up dead Wolfe is soon on the prowl. With the sometimes able assistance of the fey Archie the pair uncover a feud and a murderer. How they do it is a reminder of the narrative skills of Rex Stout.
