MURDER, STAGE LEFT By Robert Goldsborough



I have been a fan of Nero Wolfe’s books for over fifty years. I have all of those by Rex Stout many times. I have read some the books by Robert Goldsborough and I like his rendition of the characters. He has caught their essence and is expanding their development. Nero is coveting a rare orchid and sends Archie undercover in order to earn a plant. At the end of Archie’s first day, there is a murdered man. Now Nero must contend with Inspector Cramer and the news media as the composite drawing of the mystery man is Archie. Of course, Nero calls in Saul to take Archie’s place. Will Wolfe solved the case to earn that orchid. I like the ending. I highly recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from Open Roads Integrated through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I haven’t read any Nero Wolfe books in a long time. Thanks for the reminder.

    It sounds like a whole other series I missed while immersed in teaching. I’m requesting this one and if I don’t get it, I will make a note to read it on my own. Thanks for highlighting this one.

    • How could you miss Rex Stout Nero Wolfe and Archie. I can’t tell how many times I have read the stories. I would suggest you start with a Red Stout book and not Robert Goldsborough one. Many Rex Stout can fawn on the former books. I find them a nice extension.

    OK, good tip. If I don’t get this one on Netgalley, I will be sure to start with Rex Stout. How could I miss reading them? Sad. I was a prolific reader until I started teaching. It, along with the other things going on in my life, was all consuming. I mainly read books related to my profession. I don’t regret the efforts I put into teaching, but I am delighted to become a reader for pleasure again!

    When I am in the U.S. this summer I can check out the small library in the small town near where I live and see if they have it. Nothing like that available where I live in Mexico.
