Might As Well Be Dead | [Rex Stout]

Might As Well Be Dead

It's a noble idea: James Herold, a wealthy businessman, gave his son a very raw deal 11 years ago; now he wants to make amends. But the son is long-gone, and he wants to stay that way. Herold hires Nero Wolfe to track him down. It turns out the son is bad company, on trial for a cold-blooded murder. Wolfe gets caught in a web of lies, and it could cost him dearly.

What the Critics Say

"It's always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." (The New York Times)
"What's not to like about a Nero Wolfe mystery? The mysteries are short, cleverly plotted, well paced, and, if you're an audiobook listener, wonderfully read by Michael Prichard....Prichard has read nearly 20 books in Stout's series and has mastered Wolfe's deep, meditative voice and Archie's spry, chipper voice, as well as those of a host of other characters we recognize from one recording to the next."
