by | Read by Michael Prichard

Mystery & Suspense • 6.3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1940

While listening to this with me, my daughter asked why I thought the particular reader had been selected, and, without thinking, I said: "Because he has a fat voice." That about sums up Michael Prichard's presentation of Nero Wolfe, the obese detective and gourmand who raises orchids and hates to leave his brownstone. Prichard isn't so good with the other characters, although he does vary the pitch of his voice to distinguish them. Essentially this is an uncomplicated reading of a good detective book. The story has to do with the struggles of a mistress and family over the legacy of a murdered man. D.R.W. © AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 99]
