5.0 out of 5 stars No Spoiled Plot Here, 12 May 2005

This review is from: Too Many Cooks (Nero Wolfe Mysteries) (Paperback)
Nero Wolfe is the guest of honor when the greatest chefs in the world meet in West Virginia. He's honored and looking forward to all the great food but dreading the train trip itself.
They've hardly all gathered before the sparks fly. One of the chefs is universally despised, and it's really no surprise to the reader when he turns up dead. Not wanting to get involved in anything that might delay his return to his beloved brownstone, Wolfe vows to not get involved. In spite of his efforts, he finds himself getting sucked in. Can he stay alive, find the real killer, and still make his train?
My best friend has recently started reading these books and keeps recommending them to me, so I picked this one up. I can see why he likes them. This story is a great puzzle. I thought I had the plot figured out before the end, but I was only half right. Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin make for two interesting leads. I listened to the audio version, which made it a little hard to keep all the chefs straight. The further I went the easier it was, however. Michael Prichard does a great job of reading the story.
If this is an example of why Nero Wolfe a classic character in the mystery genre, I can see why. I will be looking for more books in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why are Nero Wolf books going up in price, 20 Jan 2012

As a long time fan of Rex Stout and Nero Wolf I have been enjoying getting more of them on my Kindle (this seems to be the only way to get books I don't have). However I am very disa pointed at the prices now beeing charged, 4.00 I would have thought was very good for a book long out of print. I feel that 8.00 is very excessive. Come on publishers if you want us to buy your books and make you money again second time around lets have a more realistic price.
