Stout fellow: listen to all of our Nero Wolfe mysteries, including classic radio programs!

"Rex Stout and Nero Wolfe make a combination that is hard to beat." (The New York Times)
I always listen to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe novels instead of reading them with my eyes. I just enjoy the experience of listening and Michael Prichard does all the voices perfectly. I can see each character clearly in my mind. My plan is to eventually listen to the whole series.
I adore Archie. He's smart and handsome and is perfect for keeping neurotic Nero Wolfe honest.
There's a great scene where Archie is interviewing the victim's wife but she's engrossed in the middle of a baseball game on tv. The questions and answers come in between plays and you feel like you are sitting there watching the game with them.
I usually love Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin!
No, but this is a departure from the usual Wolfe.
I always enjoy a Nero Wolf story. This time everyone kept coming up clueless. I don't ever remember seeing such a time when there was nothing, our great detectives, his men, the police, all dispondent. Then a lie was told, it opened the stale thinking up and let the light in. What a change in Nero's persona. The reader has the tone and voices down perfectly. Archie and Nero especially, just come to life!
