Here's yet another Nero Wolfe mystery brought to life by the dramatic skills of Michael Prichard. Yes, the dialogue is dated, the plot clichéd, and the hero not altogether likable, but dropping into the milieu of a posh resort in the late thirties is glamorous and fun. Michael Prichard does a masterful job of presenting the oversized detective genius who prides himself on his discerning taste buds as well as his sleuthing. In this story Nero is invited to speak at a meeting of the world's top chefs. Naturally, a chef is found murdered. Michael Prichard gives individuality and vitality to all the suspects and makes listening to this old chestnut an indulgence. D.L.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
