The Nero Wolfe Mysteries

Description

Mystery fans will devour this entry into the classic, wisecracking Nero Wolfe series, in which Wolfe must track down a dangerous gunman—or risk losing his right-hand man

Archie Goodwin is chipper as he strolls home from his weekly poker game, money in his pocket and a smile on his lips. He has just reached Nero Wolfe’s stately brownstone on West Thirty-Fifth Street when a sedan whips around the corner and two gunshots ring out, nearly hitting Goodwin. It is a warning, and the message is clear: The next bullet will not miss.

Rotund investigator Nero Wolfe has made more than his fair share of enemies over the years, and it seems one of them has decided to strike, targeting Wolfe’s indefatigable assistant. Some might run for cover, but Archie Goodwin is not the type. With the help of Wolfe’s brainpower, Goodwin will find the man who wants him dead—unless the killer gets to Goodwin first.

Nero Award–winning author Robert Goldsborough continues the brilliant work of Rex Stout in this classic mystery series. According to Publishers Weekly, “Goldsborough cleverly captures the tone and language of the originals. Rex Stout fans can only hope he has no plans to wind up the series soon.”

“Robert Goldsborough brings Nero Wolfe, late of Rex Stout, gloriously back to life.” —Chicago magazine

“Mr. Goldsborough has all of the late writer’s stylistic mannerisms down pat.” —The New York Times

“Goldsborough does a masterly job with the Wolfe legacy.” —Booklist

Robert Goldsborough (b. 1937) is an American author best known for continuing Rex Stout’s famous Nero Wolfe series. Born in Chicago, he attended Northwestern University and upon graduation went to work for the Associated Press, beginning a lifelong career in journalism that would include long periods at the Chicago Tribune and Advertising Age.

While at the Tribune, Goldsborough began writing mysteries in the voice of Rex Stout, the creator of iconic sleuths Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. Goldsborough’s first novel starring Wolfe, Murder in E Minor (1986), was met with acclaim from both critics and devoted fans, winning a Nero Award from the Wolfe Pack. Nine more Wolfe mysteries followed, including Death on Deadline (1987) and Fade to Black (1990). His most recent book is Archie in the Crosshairs (2015).

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 31, 2015 – At the start of Shamus Award finalist Goldsborough's first-rate 10th Nero Wolfe pastiche (after 2014's Murder in the Ball Park), Wolfe's leg man, Archie Goodwin, is returning home to his boss's West 35th Street Manhattan brownstone when someone shoots at him twice. Archie avoids injury, but the next morning, a man calls Wolfe to tell him that Archie will die soon. The detectives review past cases to determine who might bear such a homicidal grudge, including the relatives of men they sent to prison or to execution. Meanwhile, with their bank balance in bad shape, Archie persuades Wolfe to take on the case of a young heiress who's being blackmailed over an indiscretion that could endanger her engagement. Goldsborough cleverly captures the tone and language of the originals. Rex Stout fans can only hope he has no plans to wind up the series soon.
