This is just one of many great books by Rex Stout in his Nero Wolfe series. He is an author everyone can enjoy, from a seventh grader to Ph.D.s. Have a dictionary at hand because your vocabulary will improve! Suspenseful, entertaining, clean, with compelling characters and brilliant prose. Try it! Tou'll like it!

I read all the Nero Wolfe books 35 years ago. They are easy reading and very entertaining (Archie, the side kick, has a great wit). I read all kinds of books and sometimes I like to pick up one that will read quickly. I am going to read all in the series again. I recommend them to anyone who likes detective mysteries that are not graphic or full of 4-letter words and have some humor to them.

This is a book you can't put down. It is the first book to feature the lazy sleuth, and his straight-out-of-the-movies Watson, Archie Goodwin. It starts with the disapearance of an imagrint welder but ends with the death of a college president. Really good!

This is a very enjoyable, cozy mystery. Nero Wolfe is an eccentric and a genius. Archie Goodwin is his quintessential right hand man - he acts as Wolfe's eyes and legs. The story has twists and turns and only Nero can put the puzzle together.

This is Rex Stouts first Nero Wolfe mystery. These books harken back to a simpler time when writers in the genre were expected to deliver an entertaining yarn and a pretty good puzzle. I've read all of the Wolfe mysteries and I think this is the best of them. It's worth a read for anyone who values good writing.

I just recently got back to some of the older authors and this first novel of Nero Wolfe was a good restart for me.

Read the entire set and in a few years you'll want to pick one of the favorites up again. you'll keep going back over and over again. I even went as far as to find the cookbook. Nero Wolfe is a true excentric, but like Sherlock he's brilliant! Archie is an interesting sidekick. Enjoy it is good for most readers, not raunchy, yet interesting
