3.0 out of 5 stars A Middling Entry in the Nero Wolfe Catalogue, Aug. 4 2011
Alison S. Coad (Montreal, Quebec, Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Might As Well Be Dead (Paperback)
"Might as Well Be Dead," by Rex Stout, is another Nero Wolfe novel, this one from 1956. Wolfe is approached by a man who, years ago, accused his son of theft; the son left their Midwest home and headed for New York City, after which the family heard nothing from him. The father has recently learned that the son was not guilty of the crime and wants Wolfe to find him and, hopefully, restore him to the bosom of his family. But when Wolfe investigates, he quickly learns that the son has just been convicted of murder and will soon be executed, even though his lawyer is convinced that the man is innocent. When people associated with the case, and with Wolfe's investigation of it, start turning up dead as well, the young man's innocence is proven but Wolfe must find the real killer before he strikes yet again....I'd put this as a medium Nero Wolfe, not among the very best, but still quite good. And the motive for the murders is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago. Recommended.
