A car accident in upstate New York strands Nero Wolfe, America’s largest detective, and Archie Goodwin, his confidential assistant, in the midst of a family feud. The feud, over $45,000 worth of prize bull, turns ugly when the beef in question is found pawing the mangled body of a family scion. Solving the mystery is no problem—but, alas, the evidence keeps disappearing.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 rac sassle | 4/19/2017

    " Some Buried Cesar is my favorite Nero Wolfe story so far. Wolfe is on his way to display orchids at a fair when his car has an accident in the country. A run-in with a prize bull leads to a murder case for him, and an unwanted, but persistent, admirer for Archie. Really entertaining. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/21/2014

    " Nero Wolfe out of his comfort zone, Lily Rowan's first appearance, and Archie Goodwin's incomparable wit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David | 1/20/2014

    " Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin are truly great characters but I found this a little talky. And Stout must have been paid by the word back then; lots of repetition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddy Allen | 1/13/2014

    " A prize bull, a restaurateur's tacky publicity stunt, a family feud (among the bull's owners), and the death of a family scion pit Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin against a special breed of killer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colleen | 1/6/2014

    " Any mystery buff 'worth their salt' has read the Rex Stout, Nero Wolfe series!! These are wonderful, quick reads - I read one a day until I had gone through the whole series. Wolfe is not the reason I read them though...I have a mad crush on Archie Goodwin ;-) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andy | 12/21/2013

    " I'm swimming upstream on this one, since most fans consider it one of Wolfe's best adventures and I don't. It just feels a bit contrived. Or maybe I just prefer Wolfe to stay in the old brownstone... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rozonda | 9/2/2013

    " Probably the best Nero Wolfe mystery, because it has all of the author's qualities (irony, realism, wit) and very few of his vices (more of the time than his: conventional views on women and social classes) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 7/29/2013

    " Not what I would have chosen as a OBOC title... Archie is fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianne G Sagan | 6/23/2013

    " This is one of my favorites! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary G. | 5/10/2013

    " This was read for the Indianapolis Bouchercon. As much as understand this book is a classic, I did not enjoy it. Stout was a good writer, however, my taste is more towards the British golden age writers. I doubt, it I would ever read another Nero Wolf book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Colin | 2/11/2013

    " The best of all the Nero Wolfe novels, introducing the incomparable Lily Rowan. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 12/27/2012

    " Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe is always fun to read. Nothing really surprises me and I rarely feel connected to characters as real people. However the stories are fun and always satisfactory in regard to the solution. I enjoy Archie's wit and find Nero's eccentric behavior comical as well. Good read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niffer | 12/9/2012

    " Decent but not my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Hines | 9/26/2012

    " Nero Wolfe on a horse farm in the Hudson Valley. Definitely one of the best in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Palmreader | 5/15/2012

    " Read all these too. Loved them. Loved the tv series as well. Maury Chaykin was perfect as Wolfe "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess Nelson | 3/21/2012

    " A favorite new mystery writer (also thanks to Karen) - entertaining, super evocative of 1930s NYC, great characters, quick reads. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 earthy | 3/13/2012

    " Archie crashes Wolfe's car, leading to an encounter with a $45,000 bull and, of course, a murder. Some great snark and the first appearance of Lily Rowan make this worth a read, but other Wolfe stories are more engaging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Helene | 1/30/2012

    " Lily's first appearance! and the writing rich. I've read that the trick is have a character whom one believes capable of murder. Check. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam | 10/9/2011

    " This is probably in my top 5 Nero Wolfe books since it's where we first meet Lily. The image of Nero standing on the rock in the middle of the field is burned in my brain forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 7/21/2011

    " Nero Wolfe. Book also has The Gold Spiders "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 6/9/2011

    " These are fun mysteries. Great summer reading. I'd give this one 3 1/2 if it let me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 E | 5/21/2011

    " Nero Wolfe out of New York. Nero Wolfe racing to climb a hay bale to avoid bulls in a pasture. Nero Wolfe stepping around cow paddies at the state fair. What's not to like? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 5/14/2011

    " A favorite new mystery writer (also thanks to Karen) - entertaining, super evocative of 1930s NYC, great characters, quick reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Niffer | 4/28/2011

    " Decent but not my favorite. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rozonda | 4/23/2011

    " Probably the best Nero Wolfe mystery, because it has all of the author's qualities (irony, realism, wit) and very few of his vices (more of the time than his: conventional views on women and social classes) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nina | 7/6/2010

    " Such a fun 1940s mystery series - Archie and Nero Wolfe are great characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 6/10/2010

    " This was read for the Indianapolis Bouchercon. As much as understand this book is a classic, I did not enjoy it. Stout was a good writer, however, my taste is more towards the British golden age writers. I doubt, it I would ever read another Nero Wolf book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 5/23/2010

    " This is the second one in a row with Wolfe away from home. I'm starting to miss Wolfe's New York brownstone. This book was a little less satisfactory than the others I've recently read. Maybe I'm just getting tired of Wolfe and Archie. Hope not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Slarson6 | 4/29/2010

    " Nero Wolfe is out of his home and in upstate New York, on a FARM! Another twisted mystery, that you know you should have known the answer. Good Read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 4/1/2010

    " For me Wolfe is entirely entertaining as a character. Goodwin I find a bit annoying in too large a dose.

    The mystery is perfect, however - one that you can't quite figure out but realize you should have when all is revealed.

    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peggy | 12/18/2009

    " The Indianapolis One Book, One City. This was a good who-done-it book and fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis | 11/26/2009

    " One of my favorites of the Nero Wolfe books, as Wolfe is dragged away from his comfy home to discover who murdered a prize bull.
    Plus, the first book where we meet the lovely Lilly Rowan, who goes on to become a regular in the series.
