Overview

All pretty Amy Denovo wants to find the father she has never seen, but she can’t afford Nero Wolfe’s outlandish fees . . . or can she? Suddenly she’s knocking on the oversized detective’s door with a parcel full of bills in hand—and a quarter of a million hidden in her closet. It’s all part of a nest egg left by her unknown father. But when Wolfe and his able assistant, Archie Goodwin, begin to trace the money to the man, they make a startling discovery: Amy’s father murdered her mother—and now he may be after her.

“It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.”—New York Times Book Review

The whole Wolfe/Goodwin canon is good. If you like stories with amazing characters, smart and witty dialogue, and lots of twists and turns, you'll enjoy these books.

As always, Rex Stout's Archie Goodwin takes the prize. Nero Wolfe is never stumped. Great book. My only wish is that Rex Stout had lived longer to write more books.
