Some days you just need Archie Goodwin to cheer you up. This did the trick. ( )

I love all the Nero Wolf books, so am a biased judge; listened to this and really enjoy Michael Pritchard ( )

Nero Wolfe books are great to read when I need something to read. I've read enough reviews to know that I'm not alone in forgetting the plots and other details, and only enjoying the company of the main characters. Especially Archie.

In this book, his charm is on full display, as the client falls for him instantly, and decides he's the only one who can solve her problem. Of course, he does. With help from Nero and the rest of the gang, he tracks down her father, and proves that said father murdered her mother. ( )
