I read this book about 7-Dec-2022. This is the first time I've read this book. The book is copyright 2017. This note was last modified Sunday, 11-Dec-2022 18:43:01 PST.
This is book 12 of the "Nero Wolfe Continuation" series.
This note contains spoilers for the book.
This one really felt phoned in. There are recaps of things established throughout the original series, badly added, which nobody who would pick this book up in the first place could ever need. There is also Wolfe at least twice bringing down a raceme of orchids described merely by color.
Also Archie seems to not be nearly as familiar with the theater as he was a while ago.
