Two years after Wolfe's retirement, his past returns with deadly intent It wasn't Nero Wolfe's idea for Orrie Cather to kill himself, but the great detective gave his blessing to his longtime associate's plan. Cather had killed three people, and it was only fair to pay the price. Though Wolfe reacted to Cather's death with his characteristic calmness, prize assistant Archie Goodwin could see the rotund genius of West Thirty-Fifth Street was shaken to his well-fed core. Wolfe decided his sleuthing days were finished. The detective's retirement lasts until the day Maria Radovich walks through his townhouse door. She is the daughter of Milos Stefanovic, New York Symphony conductor and long-ago compatriot of Wolfe's. Like Wolfe, Stefanovic spent his youth as a freedom fighter in the mountains of Montenegro. The conductor has been receiving death threats, and Wolfe agrees to come out of retirement to help his old friend. But before he can attack the case, Stefanovic is murdered, and for the first time in years, Wolfe and Goodwin must go to war.… (més)

I was a bit trepidatious about trying this book having read all of Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books (though there still may be a few short stories that I missed). Overall, I would say Goldsborough did a decent job of capturing the flavor of Stout's characters but was a bit more wordy than Stout was, especially in the wrap-up after the case had been solved.

A note to Stout fans - don't read this if you haven't yet read Stout's "A Family Affair"! This book talks about the ending of that final full length novel in the original Nero Wolfe series in some detail (which, if you have read it, makes sense). ( )

Never having read a Nero Wolfe novel before, this was different from the cozies that I normally read. And I couldn't figure it out, which is always a plus. ( )

I'll confess I don't read Nero Wolfe novels to solve the mystery. I read them to enter the world of Nero and Archie. Goldsborough's continuation of Rex Stout's brilliant series is a passable recreation. All of the regulars are here: Fritz, inspector Cramer, Stebbins, Rowcliffe, Saul Panzer, Fred Durkin and Lily Rowan. wolfe's eccentricities are intact. Archie's reaction to them are spot on. I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to mystery and Stout fans. My only caution is to read Stout's last novel A FAMILY AFFAIR before you read this one. Goldsborough spoils the ending of it early on. ( )

Another splendid Nero Wolfe Mystery. The niece of an old friend of Nero's comes to ask him to try to find out who has been sending her uncle threatening notes, Her uncle is the conductor of the New York Symphony and very stubborn and won't go go to see Nero so Archie accompanies the niece Maria home to try to get her uncle to see Nero, after telling Archie to wait in the lobby she then goes into the apartment and goes into her uncle office and finds him dead.
This was a well written book and of course the characters were great, I felt as though I was watching a Nero Wolfe movie. ( )

This was my first Nero Wolfe read, and it won't be the last. I enjoyed how Wolfe and Archie gradually solved the case and confronted the real killer. ( )
