Description


When a loudmouthed author gets silenced, Nero Wolfe looks for the triggerman. The gun was fired close to Charles Childress's head and his were the only fingerprints on it, forcing the police to conclude that the author committed suicide. But his friends know this is impossible; Childress loved himself far too much. He had just begun attracting fame, writing new mysteries starring the iconic Sergeant Barnstable, and he had bright hopes for the future. But when his publisher hires corpulent genius Nero Wolfe to determine who cut Childress's career short, the detective finds no dearth of suspects. Among the many who may have wanted the wordsmith whacked are Childress's agent, his editor, a corrupt book reviewer, and an enraged legion of Barnstable devotees. With the help of his indefatigable assistant, Archie Goodwin, Wolfe takes a look at those closest to the arrogant, argumentative author, hoping to decide which of his associates merely hated him, and which would have been willing to kill. "Likely to satisfy the old Rex Stout faithful." -Publishers Weekly "A very clever mystery." -Booklist "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).
