In this Nero Wolfe mystery, the reclusive detective sets out to prove that colleague Orrie Cather is innocent of the murder of a kept woman and--gasp--he lets a beautiful woman in need of protection move into his New York brownstone. Michael Prichard's reading is excellent, although his characterization of Archie Goodwin, Wolfe’s sidekick, is a tougher character than I'd expected, far different, at least, from the most recent portrayal by Timothy Hutton on A&E. His erudite Nero Wolfe is right on the money. Prichard's style of narration gives the story a somewhat hard-boiled interpretation that is enjoyable. Even if you've read the book, this one is worth a listen. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
