Sintesi dell'editore

Archie Goodwin leaves Manhattan for the Midwest to find out who put a bullet into a banker.

Archie Goodwin’s aunt Edna is about to lure him away from his work at Nero Wolfe’s New York brownstone. After a phone call, he heads off to Ohio, where the president of Farmer’s State Bank and Trust, an elderly widower, has died in an apparent suicide. But Archie’s aunt has expressed nagging suspicions - which only grow stronger when someone takes a shot at a local reporter who wrote about the case.

It wouldn’t be a small town without some gossip, and Archie soon hears the whispers: romantic intrigues, a possible paternity case, a ruined business. While reconnecting with his aging mother - and fending off his nagging aunt - Archie tries to untangle a web of grudges, scandals, and murder.

From Nero Award-winner Robert Goldsborough, this is a brand-new novel in the series created by Rex Stout, starring one of the world’s most beloved detectives and his equally engaging sidekick.

Excellent

This was a very interesting story set in Ohio. An insight into archies background was entertaining.

A strong addition to the Wolfe oeuvre

“Archie Goes Home” continues the Wolfe tradition honorably. Robert Goldsborough, the continuator author, has truly settled into the rhythm firmly established by Rex Stout. The clues to resolve the mystery are subtle when read and obvious when explained. I love getting so much more of Archie’s backstory. His mother is a lively addition to the cast of characters and, having met her, it is easy to see where Archie’s inquisitive nature was nurtured. LJ Ganser is a terrific narrator and I cannot fathom why “Murder Stage Left” was narrated by, perhaps, the single worst narrator in the history of Audible. Ganser is the voice of these characters now. I look forward to the next Goldsborough / Ganser collaboration.

Enjoyable escapades highlight Archie's trip

As a casual reader of Nero mysteries since high school I don't know why other reviewers have to be so harsh on Mr. Goldsborough. For me it's an enjoyable romp with some of my favorite detectives. I avoided this one at first but found it rewarding to listen to. You may not get to sit in the red leather chair at the brownstone but you will find some great listening ahead.

Annoying

Extremely too many witless, low intelligence conversations between family members having little to do with plot. I really felt the author had nothing enough to fill a complete book so he wrote a lot of nonsense. Not close to Rex Stout for sure. The narrator can’t do Archie as well as I’m used to so: Annoying Sorry. Just disappointed I’ve run out of real Nero Wolfe audiobooks to hear

Very thin

Same information over and over and over. Narrator establishes the facts of the suspects and then creates about four different venues to repeat all of the information about them. Nothing new was added. The Nero Wolfe shows up at the inn N out his head pulls out information you never had an solves the whole case. I love the Nero wolf books they’re very easy to listen to, but this one was it worth my time.

Nero Wolfe

One of my favorites. Archie Goes Home was particularly good. Also liked Archie in the Crosshairs.

Sentimental Tripe

Very disappointing. Goldsborough's Nero Wolfes have been pretty good on the whole. This is not up to the standard. No plot to speak of, and overfull of sentimental maunderings between Archie and his mother. Their domestic life, with meals in enervating detail, and the mutual admiration society, is the main content of the book. And not least, it's also virtually a no-Wolfe Wolfe; he pops in for a spot of denouement at the end! I should think Rex Stout must be turning in his grave, at this weak parody of a Nero Wolfe detective story.
The narrator is very good, and does his best with the ferociously bad material.
