Publisher's Summary

A professor’s death lures the reclusive detective and his sidekick to a bucolic crime scene: “Goldsborough does a masterly job with the Wolfe legacy.” (Booklist)

An academic so conservative he thought Ronald Reagan was a pinko, Hale Markham rules Prescott University like an intellectual tyrant - until the morning he’s found dead at the bottom of one of Prescott’s famously beautiful ravines. Every liberal on campus hated the crotchety old crank, but which one is responsible for giving Markham his final push to the right? 

The case so intrigues the incomparable, reclusive master detective Nero Wolfe that he takes the unusual step of leaving the confines of his home. With man of action Archie Goodwin at his side, Wolfe examines jealous professors, a fanatical assistant, and a university president with an ego that - like the school itself - will not stop growing. Though they’re far from the city, Wolfe and Goodwin will find that no back alley is as dangerous as the shadowy corridors of the Ivy League.

Getting predictable

Goldsborough has ended his first three books with the 'bring them here and I'll expose the culprit' scenario. I hope he decides to change it up a bit.

Enjoyed

Third book I’ve listened to and I’m getting addicted!
I like the way they are narrated and the way Goodwin is supposedly writing the book and his observyof Nero and others makes me laugh.

Charmless fat man story

I had often wondered a out Nero Wolfe stories. I wonder no more. He is charmless, arrogant, inconsiderate, lazy and rude. The only mystery is why no bulletin off.

Very Nero.

I was very pleased with this, both Wolfe and Archie have a strong flavour of the original Rex Stout maverick characters, and the story is very entertaining. I will be listening to more of Robert Goldsborough's neroations.
