Read full description of the books Fade to Black:Nero Wolfe series - #5 by Robert Goldsborough in his continuation of Rex Stout's 47 volume series. A formulaic mystery. Nero Wolfe reads, dines (surely, "eats" is too plebian), and tends his orchids. Archie Goodwin nags him into taking a case. Wolfe meets the clients. Archie conducts interviews and discovers a body. Archie reports to Wolfe. Inspector Cramer visits, threatens and blusters. Wolfe thinks. Wolfe calls a mass meeting at his office. Wolfe uncovers the villain.
Wolfe seldom leaves his brownstone on West 35th St., Manhattan, the site of his home and office. This formula has lasted for some 80 novels and novellas, and with skillful writing can be ever fresh. After re-reading Stout's canon, I am re-reading the first seven Goldsborough continuations after 20 or so years, and for dessert I will read, for the first time, the two volumes he has published after a gap of 18 years. I am sure there are a host of Wolfe fans who can appreciate my anticipation.
Nero Wolfe series - World-renowned detective Nero Wolfe and his sidekick, Archie Goodwin, investigate a case of industrial espionage that resulted in a brutal murder.
Read information about the authorRobert Goldsborough is an American author of mystery novels. He was born in 1937 and grew up in the Chicago area. Although he worked for 45 years for the Chicago Tribune and Advertising Age, he first came to prominence in the 1980s with the publication, with the approval of the estate of Rex Stout, of his Nero Wolfe mystery Murder in E Minor. Written privately for his mother back in 1978, shortly after the death of Stout, creator of the Wolfe stories, the novel received a Nero Award.
Six other Nero Wolfe books followed from Goldsborough, all favorably received. However, more recently he has turned his attention to creating books with his own characters, beginning with Three Strikes You're Dead, a novel set in pre-war Chicago, and starring Steve Malek, a reporter for the Tribune.
