A bomb explodes in the desk drawer of a top TV executive. But was the death trap intended for him or for the man who opened the drawer? Each man had a host of enemies, so was it the ambitious business partner, the jealous wife, the office secretary, or the man with blood on his hands? Nero Wolfe finds himself up to his corpulent neck as he and Archie Goodwin sort their way through secrets, over-the-top ambition, and a long list of suspects to find the truth and the guilty party.

    " typical Nero Wolf, medium good "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hobart | 11/3/2010

    " a lot of fun, good solid plot from a master still at his prime. Loved the fact that a certain recurring character got his comeuppance. Another one I don't understand why I don't read more often. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sallie | 10/27/2010

    " One of the titles in my Rex Stout book of 7 novels. I've had this for years, but didn't get all of the books read. Shame on me! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 6/23/2010

    " I have always liked Rex Stout books but I enjoy them even more since A&E's Nero Wolfe series. Timothy Hutton IS Archie for me now and that increases my pleasure exponentially.

    3.5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 6/28/2009

    " You can definitely tell this is a later mystery in the series; there is a play on the word 'prick' which leads into some pretty suggestive territory for a Nero Wolfe novel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Courtney | 5/24/2009

    " another one I've read before but I needed a little nero wolfe. good as always and I didn't remember who did it as I was reading it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ferret | 4/21/2009

    " Wolfe felt less involved and less interesting in this novel. Archie drove the plot, but Wolfe didn't object as much as I expected he would. Decent entertainment but nothing to recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Frank | 11/3/2008

    " I love the Nero Wolfe novels. Stout is a classic mystery writer--something I appreciate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chazz | 4/16/2008

    " Three to four stars; I guess I'll give this one the benefit of the doubt. The mystery and denouement itself are pretty much standard, but the interplay between Nero, Archie, and the gang can be really rich and delicious. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 3/11/2008

    " Reread this--am rereading all of my Nero Wolfe--this is a late one, not one of his best, but has a great 30 last pages. The PG Wodehouse of mystery novelists. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 2/10/2008

    " This is one of the best Rex Stout Mysteries I ever read. Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin are at their finest. I love the wit and the natural way the plot unfolds. "
