The tables were redwood slabs and the chairs were chromium with webbed plastic seats. A dozen pink dogwoods in bloom, in big wooden tubs, were scattered around on Monday, the day I arrived, but when I went to the lounge at cocktail time on Wednesday they had disappeared and been replaced by rhododendrons covered with buds. Also three elevators. The one we were in was gold-plated, or possibly solid. On the upper floor we went left, then right, and near the end of the hall he opened a door and bowed me in. He followed, to tell me about the phones.

A classic Wolfe and Archie setup with a wealthy, belligerent client who already thinks he knows the culprit behind recent leaks of information from his company. We have all the usual characters, including Orrie, Saul and Fred and the ever-annoyed inspector Cramer. The sparring between Cramer and Wolfe is as enjoyable as ever. This is a great series and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good mystery. Sherlock and Watson with a heap of humor.

Rex Stout's 1957 novel "If Death Ever Slept (A Nero Wolfe Mystery Book 29)" involves a case that Nero Wolfe would normally never take. The only reason he does is a contagion of stubbornness at the old brownstone. The writing, as almost always, is excellent, the characterizations great, and the story line interesting. It really has only one slight shortcoming: the discovery and revelation of the villain is a bit abrupt and anti-climatic. Still, I'm very happy with the book and am rating it at a Very Good 4 stars out of 5.

If you like Wolfe and Archie this will be a lot of fun for you. For me Archie is one of the funniest people every created. A pure joy.Wolfe is reliable and a genius, funny in a sour and final way. If you understand wolfe you come to understand that by creating an atmosphere that suits you and keeps you calm, you allow your brain to be at its best. Wolfe can not work in just any atmosphere. He needs to be comfortable. Imagine if we translated that idea to the place where you worked. Imagine a stress free environment. What would that be like for you? I would recommend this author to anyone who likes mysteries.

As the custom of pasted stories, not alot details to wrap one's mind around. Artchie has a way to get one's thinking of an illogical end. Good read. Ending not so.

It's Nero Wolfe. It doesn't get much better than that. Classic Archie and Nero mystery. If you haven't met them yet, get started!

Archie is, as usual, the voice for these novels. At the time they were written, clean was the way to go, unless you were Mike Hammer. Wolfe, as always, astounds us with his brilliance - and his grouchiness. An enjoyable way to spend a few hours.

This is not my favorite Nero Wolfe novel; its recitation of the suspects' movement timelines strikes me as a bit tedious, and it it one of those that seem to have more descriptions of waiting for something to happen than of things actually happening. But it still has all the elements that make the Nero Wolfe series a pleasure to read: well-defined characters, interplay between Wolfe and Archie Goodwin and rest of the usuals, as well as Archie's wit and wisecracks.
Another fun Nero Wolfe book. The pacing was good, and the characters, as usual were well drawn. The plot was fairly simple, but the determination of the villain was mired in a bit of minutiae. A portion of the book was eaten by a timeline description, and unless you want to solve the mystery yourself, you could probably give that a skip.
