About the Author:

Rex Stout (1886–1975) wrote dozens of short stories, novellas, and full-length mystery novels, most featuring his two indelible characters, the peerless detective Nero Wolfe and his handy sidekick, Archie Goodwin.

From AudioFile:

Narrator Michael Prichard excels as the brilliant detective, gourmet, and grouch, Nero Wolfe. Prichard's polished, smooth style is the only way to feature the sophisticated, egotistical detective who solves crimes with an incisive mind and an active assistant, one Archie Goodwin. This mystery involves two brutal murders tied to the antagonism between an industrial association and a governmental regulatory agency. Predictably and reassuringly, justice prevails, and the listener knows that even if "they don't write 'em like that anymore," they still tell them with panache and charm.
