When Priscilla Eads, heiress to the fortune of a cotton towel company, implores Nero Wolfe to sort through a case buried in dirty laundry, Wolfe says no. But hours later, Mrs. Eads and her maid get strangled, and the stories of the suspects don’t quite wash.

To the dismay of a greedy board of directors and Mrs. Eads’ gold-digging ex-husband, the astute Wolfe decides to scrub away the stain of murder.

Listener Opinions

    " One of the problems with murder mysteries is someone has to die. In this case not one but two likable female characters are killed off. The book is good, but I was left feeling rather sad about the two women. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/26/2011

    " A good Nero Wolfe novel is easy reading when you don't want anything too deep. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephen | 1/24/2011

    " Another enjoyable Nero Wolfe mystery from Rex Stout. Wolfe's client in this one is none other than Archie himself. As usual, who cares who done it? The pleasure here is the banter between Archie and Wolfe, Wolfe's eccentricities, and Archie's humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 8/8/2010

    " typical wolfe and, again, just what i needed. "

    " A favorite! You can also find this story in the A&E t.v. series that aired within the past 5 years or so. "

    " I love me some Archie Goodwin and Nero Wolfe. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 10/24/2008

    " This was my first Nero Wolfe book. I wasn't so crazy about the story overall, but I did get a big ol' kick out of Archie and Nero and their relationship. I think I'm going to have to start at the beginning of the series in order to get a better appreciation of it. "

    " another Nero Wolfe mystery, excellent as always "

    "
    A woman who unsuccessfully seeks Nero Wolfe's services is later found murdered. Archie feels responsible, and temporarily leave's Wolfe's employ to solve the case. Another good entry in the series. "
