Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Nero Wolfe Mysteries “A virtually perfect homage to the Rex Stout originals, from the orchids to the beer to the gourmet food and, best of all, to Archie’s bemused, self-deprecating narration. Comfort food for fans of classic mysteries.” —Booklist “Outstanding. . . . Goldsborough again demonstrates an impressive ability to emulate Rex Stout’s narrative voice.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)   “Devotees of the late Rex Stout’s bestsellers will be pleasantly surprised.” —Publishers Weekly   “Robert Goldsborough brings Nero Wolfe, late of Rex Stout, gloriously back to life.” —Chicago   “Mr. Goldsborough has all of the late writer’s stylistic mannerisms down pat.” —The New York Times   “Goldsborough does a masterly job with the Wolfe legacy.” —Booklist
