  • Book Rating: 5/5

Michael Pritchard is the best imaginable narrator for all the Rex Stout books. He gives Nero Wolfe the perfect air of pompous grumpiness and makes Archie Goodwin Wolfe's perfect foil. As always, the story is intelligently written with an ingenious solution and the perfect touch of humor.
