Mystery & Suspense • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1942

These stories are told by Archie Goodwin, assistant and legman for the fabled orchidist and gourmet sleuth, Nero Wolfe. Wolfe is famous not only for his eccentric behavior, but also for solving crimes without ever leaving his desk. Now, however, the U.S. has entered WWII, and Wolfe is on a diet and exercise routine Archie is pretty sure it’s going to kill him if he doesn’t intervene. But did Archie have to go out and get himself accused of murder to pull it off? Archie and Wolfe are left with many pieces of a puzzle to put together. Michael Prichard has recorded hundreds of audiobooks and is especially notable for his mystery and suspense readings. He has the crisp, clipped tones that are perfect for detective stories of crime in the big city. D.G. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
