Robert Goldsborough does a very good job of capturing the sense of the characters Rex Stout created. This is one of four or five books he has written with Nero Wolfe as the main character. All the usual suspects are there besides Nero and Archie. If you enjoy the original Nero Wolfe mysteries I think you will find these by Robert Goldsborough a good addition!
