Publisher's Summary

With Nero Wolfe on the job, you'd think murderers would take caution. But even the master detective can't stop a killing, especially if it's an inside job, right under the roof of his client, millionaire Otis Jarrell. What's more, it's Jarrell's own missing revolver that the killer uses. Wolfe must find the truth behind the scandals in Jarrell's ill-behaved family. One of its members sleeps the fitful sleep of the guilty, and Wolfe's getting dead-tired of murder.


What the Critics Say

"It's always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." (The New York Times)
"What's not to like about a Nero Wolfe mystery? The mysteries are short, cleverly plotted, well paced, and, if you're an audiobook listener, wonderfully read by Michael Prichard....Prichard has read nearly 20 books in Stout's series and has mastered Wolfe's deep, meditative voice and Archie's spry, chipper voice, as well as those of a host of other characters we recognize from one recording to the next."

Fun Story

Would you listen to If Death Ever Slept again? Why?

Yes, I enjoyed both the reader's voice and the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Archie is always my favorite. He is fun-loving, never serious, and yet, he always gets the job done.

Have you listened to any of Michael Prichard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have only listened to Michael Prichard read the Rex Stout books. He has a good voice for the story. It isn't too theatrical. He reads clearly and alters his voice enough to hear the differences in characters as well as their personalities.
