The Black Mountain | [Rex Stout]

The Black Mountain

When evil strikes a loved one, it can make us crazy. We can't think rationally enough to get revenge ourselves, so we shouldn't. But Nero Wolfe ignores reason when someone guns down a close friend in cold blood. He vows to collar the killer personally, and it thrusts him into the gravest danger of his career.

Publisher's Summary

When evil strikes a loved one, it can make us crazy. We can't think rationally enough to get revenge ourselves, so we shouldn't. But Nero Wolfe ignores reason when someone guns down a close friend in cold blood. He vows to collar the killer personally, and it thrusts him into the gravest danger of his career. The case takes him 4,000 miles across the ocean to the hazardous mountains of Montenegro, where Communist cutthroats have also disposed of Wolfe's adopted daughter. Now they zero in on the world-famous detective himself.

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

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."

    Story
    "Not a representative Nero Wolfe"

    This was more of an adventure story. Not all all the classic deduction driven mystery. For those who love Nero Wolfe and want to hear them all, sure. For those trying Nero Wolfe, it would be better to start with another one.

    A great buy for fans of Nero and Archie - this is one I hadn't read before. A really interesting story well read as always by Michael Prichard

    Story
    "Not the best of Nero Wolf"

    I love Rex Stout's Nero Wolf books! The only problem I have with this story in particular is the resolution to the mystery. I look forward to figuring out "who done it" and unfortunately, this story really doesn't provide you clues along the way, but just gives you the name of the murder. So overall good story, but not as much fun to read.
