Publisher's Summary

When a beautiful Caucasian heiress turns up dead, all clues point to her African-American fiancé, who goes straight to Nero Wolfe for help. The case appears black and white, but it's not open and shut, because Wolfe soon uncovers a new motive for the murder.

Stout fellow: explore our list of Nero Wolfe mysteries, including novels and classic radio programs.

What the Critics Say

"This audio production follows [Rex Stout's] formula to the letter, with Michael Prichard portraying both main characters brilliantly." (AudioFile)

    I'm a German (from Berlin) living since 37 years in Louisiana. Loved to read Rex Stout in German and now here in English.

    "Great story and performance"

    Rex Stout surely stuck his neck out when he wrote this book at that time. Even in today's time (or should I say "again in this time") it"s not popular to support groups which are not in the mainstream. Being in an interracial marriage myself I thoroughly enjoyed the story and of course Michael Prichard is a great performer. I probably would enjoy listen to him while he's reading the New York phone book if they still have it. Juergen Amling

    "Vintage...of course!"

    Rex Stout was well ahead of his time in many areas...and his voice was Nero Wolfe (and sometimes even Archie Goodwin). He didn't shy away from tough issues like Civil Rights...he faced them head-on. We get a taste of this in "A Right to Die". And we also get a particularly good mystery story to boot!

    "Good but not stellar"

    An engaging mystery skilfully narrated, but it's not the brightest of Rex Stout's efforts to portray his genius detective Nero Wolfe.

    "Sometimes they just get it right."
    What did you love best about A Right to Die?

    Faithfulness to the characters as written.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Archie Goodwin, of course.


    Any additional comments?

    Rex Stout was a master of detective fiction. His Nero Wolfe stories are all superb. Michael Pritchard does an excellent job capturing the nuances of the characters in his performance. The books and stories are all good reads, and Michael Pritchard's performances of them are equally good listens. No regrets in getting these.

    "Another Great Nero Mystery"
    Where does A Right to Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This may not be the best of Stout's classics, but it is in the upper rankings.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Classic who dun-it..Kepps you guessing the whole way


    What does Michael Prichard bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Prichard, who does all the Nero Wolf mysteries, has a great range and makes all the characters shine. When I READ a Wolf mystery now..I hear Prichard in my head.


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

    While All May Have A Right To Live...Some Have A Right To Die
