And Be A Villain

(A Nero Wolf Mystery)

 

See my review of Champagne for One. This seems entirely consistent with the happily formulaic series. Perhaps not quite as much romance for Archie in this one, but otherwise the main pleasure for me again is in the dryly humorous narrative style. Itís, perhaps, soft-boiled Chandler.
