There's nothing like murder to spoil a good meal. That's what Archie Goodwin, the able assistant to Nero Wolfe, discovers at a lavish dinner party hosted by a billionaire. It was a casual evening among gorgeous society girls, until champagne became a murder weapon. Luckily for Archie, his boss knows champagne and other gourmet fare. He also happens to be a genius at deduction. That combination could mean the last call for a killer who spiked the bubbly with cyanide.
"Michael Prichard's resolute and somewhat wry narration is perfectly suited to both the characters and the setting - New York in the 1950s. Wolfe's superiority is captured perfectly, and Prichard is quite believable when reading the women in the story. He also shines as Archie, giving voice to his world-weariness and his resolve that the murderer will be identified. The listener can empathize with both his frustration at having to put up with Wolfe and his admiration for his employer. A solid story, with solid narration. Prichard, like Goodwin, gets the job done with style." (AudioFile)

- Michael "I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read."
Another great Nero Wolfe tale
Yes, because Michael Prichard does such an excellent job of bringing the story alive.
Yes. It was a great adventure with suspects that all could have done it and had motive and opportunity. Those are the best ones.
Michael Prichard always reads these books very well. He is the perfect Archie Goodwin, relating their most recent case.
Not one in particular, no.
I recommend any of the Nero Wolfe audiobooks read by Michael Prichard. They are all fabulous and although my favorite is "A Family Affair" they are all excellent.
