Publisher's Summary

When a great thinker takes a nasty tumble, Wolfe goes back to school.
A conservative academic, so far to the right that he thought Ronald Reagan was a pinko, Hale Markham rules Prescott University like an intellectual tyrant - right up until the morning he is found dead at the bottom of one of Prescott’s famously beautiful ravines. Every liberal on campus hated the crotchety old crank, but which one is responsible for giving Markham his final push to the right? 
The case so intrigues the incomparable, reclusive master detective Nero Wolfe that  he takes the unusual step of leaving the confines of his home. With man of action Archie Goodwin at his side, Wolfe examines jealous professors, a fanatical assistant, and a university president with an ego that - like the school itself - will not stop growing. Though they are far from the city, Wolfe and Goodwin will find that no back alley is as dangerous as the shadowy corridors of the Ivy League.

Not Rex Stout but Not Bad

Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books are especially lovely because they are laced throughout with moments which "sit like a jewel on the cushion of" the plot. Robert Goldsborough's Nero Wolfe books bring back the much beloved characters who are at the center of Stout's books and I am always glad to spend time with Nero, Archie, Fritz, Saul and even Inspector Cramer. Goldsborough has written a perfectly fine cozy mystery. What his books lack are those moments, those jewels, which cause Stout's books to sparkle.
