Publisher's Summary

Archie Goodwin leaves Manhattan for the Midwest to find out who put a bullet into a banker.

Archie Goodwin’s aunt Edna is about to lure him away from his work at Nero Wolfe’s New York brownstone. After a phone call, he heads off to Ohio, where the president of Farmer’s State Bank and Trust, an elderly widower, has died in an apparent suicide. But Archie’s aunt has expressed nagging suspicions - which only grow stronger when someone takes a shot at a local reporter who wrote about the case.

It wouldn’t be a small town without some gossip, and Archie soon hears the whispers: romantic intrigues, a possible paternity case, a ruined business. While reconnecting with his aging mother - and fending off his nagging aunt - Archie tries to untangle a web of grudges, scandals, and murder.

From Nero Award-winner Robert Goldsborough, this is a brand-new novel in the series created by Rex Stout, starring one of the world’s most beloved detectives and his equally engaging sidekick.

A strong addition to the Wolfe oeuvre

“Archie Goes Home” continues the Wolfe tradition honorably. Robert Goldsborough, the continuator author, has truly settled into the rhythm firmly established by Rex Stout. The clues to resolve the mystery are subtle when read and obvious when explained. I love getting so much more of Archie’s backstory. His mother is a lively addition to the cast of characters and, having met her, it is easy to see where Archie’s inquisitive nature was nurtured. LJ Ganser is a terrific narrator and I cannot fathom why “Murder Stage Left” was narrated by, perhaps, the single worst narrator in the history of Audible. Ganser is the voice of these characters now. I look forward to the next Goldsborough / Ganser collaboration.
