Nero Wolfe and his capable assistant, Archie, help a rich old lady uncover the mysterious source of her husband's money. The case leads them unexpectedly to the country's most dangerous man.

Critiques

"It's always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." ( The New York Times)
"What's not to like about a Nero Wolfe mystery? The mysteries are short, cleverly plotted, well paced, and, if you're an audiobook listener, wonderfully read by Michael Prichard....Prichard has read nearly 20 books in Stout's series and has mastered Wolfe's deep, meditative voice and Archie's spry, chipper voice, as well as those of a host of other characters we recognize from one recording to the next."

My least favorite Nero Wolfe

This story follows a powerful criminal character introduced in And Be a Villain leading to a somewhat anticlimactic showdown with Nero Wolfe. I really like almost every Nero Wolfe novel, and even the ones I don’t particularly like, I don’t dislike them. This is the one I really did not like. I found the powerful criminal and conflict too derivative of Holmes and Moriarty. I don’t want to spoil any of the surprising bits for anyone, but I did not find them interesting or compelling. This is the only book of the series I actually wish I had not read, as the off characterizations here very subtly degraded my relationships with the series characters. I very highly recommend the series, but I would skip this and even And Be a Villain if I had it to do over again.

Ultimately Satisfying

This seemed a bit of a slow starter, as Rex Stout stories go, but eventually got going and proved ultimately satisfying, with Archie exhibiting fine phonated form, and Wolfe unusually discomfited.

Excellent nail biter

I was really worried about my heroes but as usual, good triumphed over evil. This might be one of Reed's best woven plots!

Most Satisfactory

Not a story for one new to Wolfe due to references from several earlier novels, but a must read if one has read/listened to most of the series.

How did the reader stay awake?

The reader of this book sounds like he would rather be anywhere other than reading it. Slow, dull, like he couldn't care less about the the book.
