An old-fashioned "who-done-it." I was wondering about all the leading characters, including "PH" in jail, to almost the very end. Set in the mid 1950s. Eleven years ago, "PH" as a young man, was falsely accused by his father of stealing from the family hardware company in Nebraska and he fled to New York. He was later cleared and the father has hired Nero Wolfe to find him. Wolfe and Archie Goodwin soon realize he is siting in jail waiting to be sentenced for murder under a different name. It comes with the usual inept police, Wolfe-ian idiosyncrasies, Archie-ian irreverent comments about his boss, and a little romance. Watch for Rex Stout making a play on words with "de-camp." I listened to the book and the audio reader, Michael Pritchard, is perfect for this series.
