Michael Prichard presents Wolfe and Goodwin just as Stout intended them. The old-fashioned (but not dated) story line, vocabulary, and slow pace are called into action when two separate murders are perpetrated within the ranks of the upper class. Goodwin makes his understated mark as he assists Wolfe with the New York City and countryside investigation. Seldom are words such as "phooey," "vulgarian," and "dunce" as well uttered! America in the 1950s is wonderfully recreated with the narrator's capable performance. Real fun for those who prefer their mysteries from an earlier era.
