To become part of the Nero Wolfe legend, Archie Goodwin must prove his worth

Archie Goodwin comes to New York City hoping for a bit of excitement. In his third week working as a night watchman, he stops two burglars in their tracks—with a pair of hot lead slugs. Dismissed from his job for being “trigger-happy,” he parlays his newfound notoriety into a job as a detective’s assistant, helping honest sleuth Del Bascom solve cases like the Morningside Piano Heist, the Rive Gauche Art Gallery Swindle, and the Sumner-Hayes Burglary. But it’s the kidnapping of Tommie Williamson, the son of a New York hotel magnate, that introduces Goodwin to the man who will change his life.

Young Tommie has gone missing, and only one detective is built for the job: Nero Wolfe, the heavyset genius of West Thirty-Fifth Street. Together they will form one of the most unlikely crime fighting duos in history—but first Goodwin must find Tommie Williamson, and prove to Wolfe that he deserves a place by his side.

  1. Greetings:
    I have just finished reading your very entertaining book which is entitled Archie Meets Nero Wolfe. The edition that I had, from my local library, is the Center Point Large Print edition, Thorndike, Maine. It was published in 2013 by arrangement with The Mysterious Press.
    For informational purposes, please allow me to mention two minor problems that I noticed.
    (1) In Chapter 27, the words “far be it for me” are used twice. The words should be “far be it from me.”
    (2) The first word of Chapter 18 is “Sunday.” The word should be “Monday.” The three reasons are as follows. Being a weekday, Archie and Tommie left for school after breakfast. Carstens and Simons ate breakfast at the Williamsons’ home, which they do only on weekdays. Mr. Williamson reads the two newspapers before taking the train to work, which he would do only on a weekday.
    Thank you for writing your excellent Nero Wolfe pastiches.

  2. I have returned to “reading” your Nero Wolfe books using Audible (previously had read the first 6 when originally release). The tone reads as a continuation of the Rex Stout books.

    There is a hole on Audible in the shape of Archie Meets Nero Wolfe. Will this book be made into an Audible version?

    Thank you.
