Prisoner's Base, by Rex Stout

  • Title:  Prisoner's Base
  • Author:  Rex Stout

One of the best Nero Wolfe books in recent memory.  This one was dark, much more so than usual, without the lure of a high paying client to justify Wolfe's involvement. The final murder, in particular, really left an impression and made me (the reader) wish Archie had handled things differently.  That's the sign of a good writer/great characters:  I'm wishing a fictional character had handled things differently...
