Publisher's Summary

You wouldn't expect a very public murder in a very private chess club. But that's what happens when someone stirs up an arsenic cocktail for one of the members.

The police have a suspect, but his daughter knows he's a pawn. She calls on Nero Wolfe, who checkmates the cops as well as the killer.

Stout fellow: listen to all of our Nero Wolfe mysteries, including classic radio programs!

©1962 Rex Stout; (P)1996 Books on Tape Inc.

    "Favorite Wolfe mystery so far"

    This was my favorite Wolfe mystery so far. Perhaps it's because of my love for chess that made it all the more enjoyable. It's a great story with some fun twists at the end.

    Story
    "Good, Fair, First-Rate Nero Wolfe Mystery."

    The story is good, the author plays fair, I managed to solve it a good bit before the revelation, and the story is clearly told so that solving the mystery is possible. The narration is solid and never gets in the way. The mystery itself is quite good and, if you pay attention, you can solve it before Wolfe. If you want to sample Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe, this is not a bad place to start.

    "Another great Nero Wolfe story"

    Another great story that Nero Wolfe solves. As smart as Wolfe is Goodwin carries the intrigue. I love this series.

    "Slow and tedious"

    The reader drones on terribly in this book (and he is normally more animated) which does not help the already tedious story. I rarely give up on a book but life is too short for this one. Half way through it was time to stop.
