The Silent Speaker by Rex Stout 271 pages
This is one of the best Nero Wolfe mysteries. It is full of intrigue, and an awful lot of flirtation. If you love excellent dialogue and mysteries that keep you guessing, you won't be disappointed. When a powerful government official scheduled to speak to a group of millionaires turns up dead, the business world clamors for a solution and Nero Wolfe takes the case. There’s really not a lot more to tell…Archie is irresistibly charming, as always. Wolfe gets sick of having too many clients and warring agencies constantly crashing his office calm. Another fantastic Nero Wolfe mystery read by Michael Prichard!
