Publisher's Summary

Blackmail is such an ugly word. But then again, so is murder. Unfortunately, both terms have been laid at the feet of one of Nero Wolfe's oldest acquaintances, a fellow P.I. with a knack for finding trouble, and stepping straight into it. He's been accused of murdering a kept woman, and now Nero's on the case. So far he and his sidekick Archie Goodwin have turned up no leads to a mysterious blackmailing episode that ends in cold-blooded murder. Their only hope is to find a sexy chanteuse who should be singing the blues. But can they find her before death calls the next tune?


What the Critics Say

"Michael Prichard's reading is excellent....His erudite Nero Wolfe is right on the money. Prichard's style of narration gives the story a somewhat hard-boiled interpretation that is enjoyable. Even if you've read the book, this one is worth a listen." (AudioFile)

One of the best of a great series

I really like most Nero Wolfe stories, but I particularly liked Death of a Doxy. It has a lot of inside-detective material which was fun and great characters and a wonderful story. This, along with the wonderful normal cast of characters makes this a great novel. This is one of Rex Stout’s best full length Nero Wolfe novels.

One of the funniest Wolfe mysteries

What did you love best about Death of a Doxy?

Wolfe has to deal with not only an odd case but one of the funniest characters that Stout ever wrote. When Julie sang a song about Wolfe being a big man, I was sold on her.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Julie sang to Wolfe about being a 'Big Man'.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
