    Nero Wolfe and his capable assistant, Archie, help a rich old lady uncover the mysterious source of her husband's money. The case leads them unexpectedly to the country's most dangerous man. And if the sleuths want to live, they'll have to consider an alien idea: run and hide. That will be no small feat for the wide Mr. Wolfe.

    Would you consider the audio edition of In the Best Families to be better than the print version?

    In general, I listen rather than read because I have a long commute. The books-on-iPod make the journey so much more enjoyable.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of In the Best Families?

    When you find that Nero has lost over 100 lbs to go undercover! It was astonishing that Nero was even able to go outside.


    What does Michael Prichard bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Michael Prichard has a flat, dead-pan delivery that sounds (to me) like a private eye's recitation of the facts. He's not surprised because he's seen it all. I think Michael is a good fit with the Nero Wolfe series.

    The seventh volume of the Flashman Papers records the arch-cad's adventures in America during Gold Rush of 1849 and the Battle of Bighorn, in 1876. This installment describes his acquaintance with famous Indian chiefs, American soldiers, frontiersmen, and statesmen.

    What did you love best about Flashman and the Redskins?

    The story arc covered by Flash for Freedom and Flashman and the Redskins is a great read. If you like historical fiction, this would be an excellent addition to your library.

  • Flashman for Freedom: Flashman, Book 3

    Story
    (23)

    A game of cards leads Flashman from the jungle death-house of Dahomey to the slave state of Mississippi as he dabbles in the slave trade in Volume III of the Flashman Papers. When Flashman was inveigled into a game of pontoon with Disraeli and Lord George Bentinck, he was making an unconscious choice about his own future - would it lie in the House of Commons or the West African slave trade? Was there, for that matter, very much difference? Once again Flashman's charm, cowardice, treachery, lechery, and fleetness of foot see the lovable rogue triumph by the skin of his chattering teeth.

    K.D. Keenan says: "Perfect for History Lovers"
    "Splendid Story"

    Where does Flashman for Freedom rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A splendid story and David Case's reading captures the sardonic nature of Harry Flashman's character perfectly.
