Everyone who knew Faith Usher knew she always carried a bottle of poison around with her, so when she dies after drinking champagne, everyone from the police to her friends to the father of her child assumes she killed herself. Nero Wolfes ace assistant Archie Goodwin is the only one who insists it was a murder. As the portly detective investigates, all the people he talks to seem to be trying to get him to stop investigating, which of course only makes Wolfe all the more stubborn. The devilish question he has to answer is, How do you solve a murder when everyone connected to the victim swears its a suicide?

Rex Stout (1886–1975) was the creator of Nero Wolfe, one of the most popular detectives of all time.From AudioFile:
Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe take on murder by poisoned champagne. The case presents challenges. Michael Pritchard's resolute and somewhat wry narration is perfectly suited to both the characters and the setting--New York in the 1950s. Wolfe's superiority is captured perfectly, and Prichard is quite believable when reading the women in the story. He also shines as Archie, giving voice to his world-weariness and his resolve that the murderer will be identified. The listener can empathize with both his frustration at having to put up with Wolfe and his admiration for his employer. A solid story, with solid narration. Prichard, like Goodwin, gets the job done with style. M.A.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
