I must disagree slightly with the above review's. Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe is always a pleasure to read and Where There's A Will is one of the more enjoyable - if only because it leaves you with a great desire to actually do physical harm to the clients yourself. I found myself wanting to rip the veiled lady's veil off or at least slap her, and as for the sister who wanted a million for her woman's university she made my teeth grate almost as much as Wolfe's!!
For once I did not solve the case until Wolfe did and the characters were well created. I loved the alcoholic lawyer, the pompous creations of these people were right on mark for the era - 1939 - and with a war coming you just knew they had no idea of how their lives were going to change forever. Trouble in Europe and politics were brushed lightly over and though it may not seem the best story to many in Nero Wolfe's history once I started I had to read right to the end because I just could not wait to find out what happened next.
