The mountain couldn't come to Wolfe, so the great detective came to the mountain—to Lame Horse, Montana, to be exact. Here a city slicker got a country girl pregnant and then took a bullet in the back. Wolfe's job was to get an innocent man exonerated of the crime and catch a killer in the process. But when he packed his silk pajamas and headed west, he found himself embroiled in a case rife with local cynicism, slipshod police work, and unpleasant political ramifications. In fact, Nero Wolfe was buffaloed until the real killer struck again, underestimating the dandified dude with an unerring instinct for detection.

Nero Wolfe packs his silk pajamas and heads West to catch a killer. Wolfe hascome to Lame Horse, Montana, where a city slicker got a country girl pregnantand wound up with two bullets in his back. Now Wolfe must get an innocent manexonerated and find the real murderer in the process. Reissue.

    " So much fun! Rex Stout is one of my favorite mystery authors -- such a classic! -- and, along with probably just about every hetrosexual female reader out there, I confess to having a major crush on Archie (in spite of myself). :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hobart | 10/26/2010

    " such a fun read--not much of a mystery, honestly, it's more about seeing Lily, Archie and Wolfe out of their element. Shouldn't be the first (or even 5th) Wolfe someone reads, but once you get to know these guys, it's a lot of fun. "

    " See my comments on "Full House" for review "

    " Archie gets Wolfe to leave the comfort of his brownstone and solve a murder at a dude ranch. The descriptions of the various bits of furniture that do not fit Wolfe's "bulk" when he is away from home are always interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sam | 7/31/2009

    " Not exactly the best Nero Wolfe mystery around. One of the main pretences of the Nero Wolfe mysteries is that Nero never leaves the Brownstone. Well in this mystery he leaves the Brownstone and goes to Texas. Kind of out of charater "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erik | 1/7/2009

    " This was my first attempt at a Nero Wolfe mystery. I found the book enjoyable, though too light for my preference. It was an easy read, but perhaps too easy, and I came away happy that I read it, but not anxious to read another. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 9/16/2008

    " classic Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe fare set in Montana. Enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 E | 6/23/2008

    " Not one of Stout's best, but taking Nero Wolfe out of New York and plopping him down on a ranch in Montana does provide some smiles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Thannasset | 7/22/2007

    " You've gotta meet Woodrow Stepanian. This guy runs a dance hall, has Milton and Shakespeare playing Scrabble against each other, shoots straight, and highly recommends Huck Finn by Mark Twain. "
