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?More
"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
- Michael "I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read."
One of the funniest Wolfe mysteries
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.
When Julie sang to Wolfe about being a 'Big Man'.
