Overview

Twenty-two-year-old Amy Denovo needs Nero Wolfe's help. She is determined to learn the identity of her father, a secret her mother scrupulously guarded - and took to her grave when struck by a hit-and-run driver. Now Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie, have just one clue to go on: a note from Amy's mother and a box with over $250,000. Seems every month since Amy's birth, her mother received $1,000 from an unknown source and saved it for Amy's future. It's easily enough for Amy to afford Wolfe's services, and he grudgingly agrees. But as the weeks go by, Wolfe realizes this may be one of his most challenging cases ever. Someone doesn't want Amy's pedigree discovered, and that someone appears to wield great power. It isn't long before Wolfe and Archie come to believe that Amy's mother was murdered - and that Amy could be next. Michael Prichard gives another of his masterful readings to this cleverly plotted tale.

The Father Hunt

  • Book Rating: 4/5

There is nothing that can be said that has not already been said about the Nero Wolfe books. Very good entertainment and very much worth the listen. Rex Stout's humour in Father Hunt brought smiles to my face with every chapter as do all of his books. Oh, P.S...the reader is GREAT! and he does the audio for all of the Nero Wolfe books, at least everyone that I have listened to.
