    Story
    (128)

    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."
    "Michael Prichard is a perfect match for Archie."

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fer-De-Lance to be better than the print version?

    Yes. When I read Nero Wolfe stories, I hear Michael Prichard's voice. His delivery is far better than mine. It's not the same experience without him.


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

    The Nero Wolfe / Michael Prichard combination is in a class by itself. The only books I might compare this to are other titles in the series.


    What about Michael Prichard’s performance did you like?

    The pace and timing of his reading, the wonderful voices he creates for the characters, especially Wolfe, and the clear distinction he makes among the characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The American Watson and Holmes
