Nero Wolfe, the epicurean detective, and his wry and irreverent legman, Archie, team up again to discover why a law office clerk has been murdered for the unlikely offense of submitting a manuscript for publication. With a cryptic quotation from the Bible and a list of names in the dead clerk's pocket as the only clues, Wolfe and Archie take the murderous manuscript to task. "Odd and intriguing. . . . Wolfe and Archie are both in top form." - The New York Times

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-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
