Publisher's Summary

After the heir to a frozen-food fortune gets iced, Wolfe’s right-hand man, Archie Goodwin, becomes a suspect.
When Lily Rowan doesn’t laugh at his jokes, Archie Goodwin knows something is wrong. Her niece Noreen has been running around with Sparky Linville, a club-hopping bad boy who is the terror of Manhattan nightlife. And the last time she went out with him, Noreen wasn’t herself when she came home. All she would tell her aunt was that she had been assaulted. 
Springing into action, Goodwin waits for Linville outside of Morgana’s, a chrome-and-glass palace that sits like a wart on Second Avenue. They nearly come to blows, but Linville’s bodyguard intervenes, and Goodwin retreats to plan his next move. In the morning Linville is dead, and Goodwin is the chief suspect. For years he has helped rotund genius Nero Wolfe out of jams, and now it is time for the master detective to return the favor.

Don't waste your time

Poorly written, insensitively handled, unimaginative story. The characters are stereotypical and have no depth. I can't get enough of Nero Wolfe but this story is just terrible.

What would have made The Last Coincidence better?

Sticking to Rex Stout's style would have made this better.

Has The Last Coincidence turned you off from other books in this genre?

This book, The Last Coincidence, has turned me against trying any other phony Nero Wolfe mystery by Robert Goldsborough.

Would you listen to another book narrated by L. J. Ganser?


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I really could not spot any redeeming qualities, but I admit that I tossed it after only 11 minutes.

Any additional comments?

Kids on drugs?
Date Rape?
Feminist blathering from Lily Rowan?

NOT a Nero Wolfe story.
