“It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.”—The New York Times Book Review

Eleven years ago, wealthy Nebraska businessman James Herold gave his only son, Paul, a very raw deal. Now he wants Nero Wolfe to track Paul down so that he can make amends. But what if the young man doesn’t want to be found . . . and what if he’s the same P.H. who’s currently on trial for cold-blooded murder? It’s a case that will draw the great detective and his dedicated sidekick into a sticky web of deceit, one that will tax their resources to the utmost, and even cost them one of their own.

Enjoyed it.

This is one of Stout's best. As always, the dialogue is smart and witty, and the characters are stellar. The mystery is an especially good one with lots of twists and red herrings.

This review is for the audio (CD) version of Might As Well Be Dead. Having read the novel some years ago and found it to be a great Nero Wolfe mystery, I can now give Michael Prichard's narration a serious thumbs up. The classic mystey account with all of Rex Stout's great characters is read clearly, and delivered in fine form, unabridged. A very enjoyable listen.
