Description


When a fellow shamus gets charged with murder, Nero Wolfe comes to his rescue. Staten Island would be forgettable were it not for the gleaming Tabernacle of the Silver Spire, where thousands of congregants come to hear the sermons of Barnabas Bay every Sunday. Millions more tune in on television, bringing the good reverend international fame and a chance to spread the gospel from New York City's harbor all the way to South Korea. But threatening notes have started to appear in the collection bag, suggesting that one of the faithful has decided it's time this good shepherd get the hook. Believing organized religion is nothing more than a scam, rotund sleuth Nero Wolfe refuses to examine the threats, instead recommending veteran investigator Fred Durkin for the case. But when Durkin is accused of murdering the reverend's assistant, Wolfe fights to clear his associate's name. Wolfe may not be a Christian, but he will always help a brother in need. "Devotees of the late Rex Stout's bestsellers will be pleasantly surprised." -Publishers Weekly "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 novel is Stop the Presses (2016).
