THE BATTERED BADGE by Robert Goldsborough



This a long-running series, I read the first in the 80’s and all of those by Rex Stout many times. When Robert Goldsboro wrote the first one I didn’t like it. Now I do enjoy reading the additional information about Nero, Archie, and friends. Both have unique qualities. I find Nero and Archie both more open and friendly. The descriptions of food dishes are not as detail. I now recommend both series. The all the regulars are developed better.
In this one, Nero is again turning away from Inspector Cramer’s until it becomes personal when Saul is injured. Nero becomes in involved and works with Cramer to solve the case. He allowed the Inspector to received the credit. As time allows I will be reading the series again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH.

    It is interesting to hear that the new writer is evolving–probably based on reader feedback.
