    Story
    (130)

    When someone makes a present of a fer-de-lance - the dreaded snake - to Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin knows he's close to solving two apparently unrelated murders. As for Wolfe, he's playing snake charmer in a case more deadly than a cobra and whistling a seductive tune he hopes will catch a killer with poison in his heart.

    ShySusan says: "One of the best crime series of all time."
    "Another Rex Stout Classic"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This audio book has a good mystery plot, the voice characterizations of Michael Pritchard are spot-on. There is the ever-present humor that the narrator character, Archie Goodwin, brings to the story.


    What other book might you compare Fer-De-Lance to and why?

    Other Rex Stout stories that are comparable are "Some Buried Caesar", "The League of Frightened Men". No other mystery writer that I'm aware of has this combination of irreverent humor and a good mystery that is "closed" and actually admits of the possibility of figuring out "who-done-it".


    What about Michael Prichard’s performance did you like?

    Prichard's characterizations of Archie, Inspector Cramer and Nero Wolfe are unforgettable and the interactions of the three in Wolve's office are unequaled.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Like all the books that I enjoy the most, I liked to savor Fer-De-Lance by reading in small sections and sometimes re-reading them before going on.
