Nero Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie, connect the dots between three seemingly unconnected murders, as always a step ahead of the chronically baffled and frustrated Inspector Cramer. Linking the murders of a law clerk, an editor, and a typist is a missing book manuscript with potentially damaging information about a prominent law firm. Narrator Michael Prichard has Wolfe, Archie, and Cramer down pat, and does justice to the supporting cast of quirky women and men. Prichard shifts smoothly from one to another and keeps the story moving at a pace that never lags while allowing listeners time to absorb the intricacies of plot. This absorbing 1940s mystery will entertain Stout fans and newcomers alike. E.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
