Rex Stout (1886-1975) was the creator Nero Wolfe, one of the most popular detectives ever.
Michael Prichard is a Los Angeles-based actor who has narrated more than 400 audiobooks. Smart Money has named him one of the "Top Ten Golden Voices."
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-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
