    I love to read, fly and play tennis. I always have a book and an audible book going at the same time. I'm a mystery/thriller junky.

    "Another great Nero Wolfe story"

    Another great story that Nero Wolfe solves. As smart as Wolfe is Goodwin carries the intrigue. I love this series.

    "Slow and tedious"

    The reader drones on terribly in this book (and he is normally more animated) which does not help the already tedious story. I rarely give up on a book but life is too short for this one. Half way through it was time to stop.
