    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.

    What did you love best about In the Best Families?

    It does th best introduction of Wolfe's greatest enermy Arnold Zeck. If Wolfe is the American version of Sherlock Holmes, then Zeck is his Professor Moriarty.


    Which character – as performed by Michael Prichard – was your favorite?

    Wolfe himself. Though he reads the book from Archie's perspective, the voice he uses to portray Wolfe is the one I heard in my head when I first started reading these books years ago.


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

    Yes. Only reason I stopped was because we hit our destination for the day's traveling.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a big Nero Wolfe fan and have read all of the books so my review is biased obviously. But my sister who rode with me the day I listened to it, is not as big a fan and she enjoyed it as well. Stout's interplay between Archie and Wolfe is one of the best in literature. It's what made me read all of the Nero Wolfe Stories. And it's what I enoyed about each of them.
