Two years after Wolfe?s retirement, his past returns with deadly intent
It wasn?t Nero Wolfe?s idea for Orrie Cather to kill himself, but the great detective gave his blessing to his longtime associate?s plan. Cather had killed three people, and it was only fair to pay the price. Though Wolfe reacted to Cather?s death with his characteristic calmness, prize assistant Archie Goodwin could see the rotund genius of West 35th Street was shaken to his well-fed core. Wolfe decided his sleuthing days were finished. The detective?s retirement lasts until the day Maria Radovich walks through his townhouse door.
She is the daughter of Milos Stefanovic, New York Symphony conductor and long-ago compatriot of Wolfe?s. Like Wolfe, Stefanovic spent his youth as a freedom fighter in the mountains of Montenegro. The conductor has been receiving death threats, and Wolfe agrees to come out of retirement to help his old friend. But before he can attack the case, Stefanovic is murdered, and for the first time in years, Wolfe and Goodwin must go to war.
Über den Autor:
Robert Goldsborough (b. 1937) is an American author best known for continuing Rex Stout?s famous Nero Wolfe series. Born in Chicago, he attended Northwestern University, and upon graduation went to work for the Associated Press, beginning a lifelong career in journalism that would include long periods at the Chicago Tribune and Advertising Age. While at the Tribune, Goldsborough began writing mysteries in the voice of Rex Stout, the creator of iconic sleuths Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. Goldsborough?s first novel starring Wolfe, Murder in E Minor (1986), was met with acclaim both from critics and devoted fans, winning a Nero Award from the Wolfe Pack. Six more novels followed, including Death on Deadline (1987) and Fade to Black (1990). In 2005, Goldsborough published Three Strikes You?re Dead, the first in an original series starring Chicago Tribune reporter Snap Malek. His most recent novel is Terror at the Fair (2011).
