Publisher's Summary

A Mets fan with a phony name and a millionaire client arrives just in time to provide a case that will allow Nero Wolfe to pay the rent. The bizarre visitors are in a frenzy about a death-trap explosion in the discreet whiskey drawer of a top TV executive. To crack this case of bombs and bourbon, the indolent genius and his energetic assistant must pick their way though corporate chicanery, vile ambition - and a healthy swig of murder.

Classic Nero Wolfe

Would you consider the audio edition of Please Pass the Guilt to be better than the print version?

I always listen to Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe novels instead of reading them with my eyes. I just enjoy the experience of listening and Michael Prichard does all the voices perfectly. I can see each character clearly in my mind. My plan is to eventually listen to the whole series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I adore Archie. He's smart and handsome and is perfect for keeping neurotic Nero Wolfe honest.

Which scene was your favorite?

There's a great scene where Archie is interviewing the victim's wife but she's engrossed in the middle of a baseball game on tv. The questions and answers come in between plays and you feel like you are sitting there watching the game with them.
