In his early teens, Robert Goldsborough began reading Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe mysteries. It was during his tenure with the Chicago Tribune that the paper printed the obituary of Rex Stout. On reading it, his mother lamented that "Now there won't be any more Nero Wolfe stories. There might be one more," Goldsborough mused, and began writing an original Wolfe novel for his mother

Rex Stout REX STOUT, the creator of Nero Wolfe, was . That would be a long time for any association to last, and is even more remarkable since.

Rex Stout REX STOUT, the creator of Nero Wolfe, was born in Noblesville, Indiana, in 1886, the sixth of nine children of John and Lucetta Todhunter Stout, both Quakers. Shortly after his birth. Nero Wolfe sprang full-grown from Stout’s forehead in that first book, and though in later years he would write non-Wolfe novels and even try his hand at another series character-from Wolfe to Fox should have been easy, after all-his doom was sealed (a melodramatic phrase Mr. Stout would never have employed) right from Fer-de-Lance.

Thirteen other Nero Wolfe books by Goldsborough followed (2018). The Last Coincidence. As the one who extended the life of Rex’s Stout’s famed private eye Nero Wolfe with seven novels in the 1980s and ’90s, I got both praise and derision - praise from readers who were glad to have more tales of Wolfe and his loyal right-hand, Archie Goodwin, and derision from those who either lamented that 'you haven’t.

I know some Rex Stout/Nero Wolfe purists are not thrilled with Robert Goldsborough’s continuation of the series, but I’ve been enjoying his efforts. The Last Coincidence was published in 1989, and, although the characters have not aged over several decades, they are now living in the late twentieth century, and Archie is keeping the orchid records and doing other office tasks on a computer. His relationship with long-time lady friend Lily Rowan gets a bit more attention, too, although Archie remains a gentleman and never goes into detail.

Loved Rex Stout's Nero & Archie but Robert Goldsborough's book was great. Only a genious like Robert Goldsborough could create a man like Nero Wolfe and the addition of Archie Goodwin to the team leaves one speevhless.

I know some Rex Stout/Nero Wolfe purists are not thrilled with Robert Goldsborough’s continuation of the series, but I’ve been enjoying his efforts. The Last Coincidence was published in 1989, and, although the characters have not aged over several decades, they are now living in the late twentieth century, and Archie is keeping the orchid records and doing other office tasks on a computer. His relationship with long-time lady friend Lily Rowan gets a bit more attention, too, although Archie remains a gentleman and never goes into detail.

In this installment, Wolfe and Archie investigate the murder of a young man who has assaulted Lily’s niece. For a moment even Archie might be a suspect, but attention soon turns to a collection of Lily’s relatives and their friends. The novel ends, as Wolfe’s cases often do, with all the suspects gathered in Wolfe’s office, as the great detective drinks beer and explains all.

Many years ago, when I was a book-a-day reader, I barreled through all the Nero Wolfe novels. I’ve picked up and enjoyed a few of those more recently, but I’m also happy to see the cases continue.

This is one of the authorized continuations of the Nero Wolfe series. Goldsborough has come very close to capturing the feel of the original series.

As the story begins Archie is out with his long time favorite companion, Lily Rowan when he realizes that something is bothering her. She reveals that her niece had recently been date raped and although the young woman did not want to disclose the culprit's name Lily had a very good idea who it had been. Archie set off to convince the man to leave the girl alone but unfortunately shortly after their meeting someone murdered the man. Inspector Cramer thought that Archie might have committed the crime but soon it became clear that there were no shortage of those who thought the man needed killing. Soon Nero has to enter into the fray, to regain the peace in brownstone if nothing else.

I have been a Nero Wolfe fan for years. Goldsborough brings Nero and Archie back giving the reader fresh eyes on classic characters. You can breeze through one of these in a day. So on a rainy Sunday put on some Jazz, make some coffee and share the day with Nero and Archie solving a murder.

This was an overall decent Goldsborough version. Unfortunately, a reader should expect what are typical character personality variations, and overly deliberate nuances, inserted throughout the story's dialogues and descriptions. The plot dragged on a bit more than what a Nero Wolfe fan is used too, though Rex Stout may continue to stand alone in the ability to maintain cognitive momentum in a stationary office setting.

If you like mysteries that are solved by a man in a chair, good thinking quiet ones, then this is your book! Most of the time I can figure them out, but this not only had me stumped, but it seemed as if Nero was also. He made an appology to his client and told her to prove who "did it" may just end in conjecture and not in a conviction. This could certainly have been anyone of many people. How would he prove who was guilty? To get the murderer to confess was the
only way! To do that he needed to be devious.

This is really a five star story, but I'm partial to Stout. Archie and Nero are perfectly portrayed, even Fitz is spot on. Nero is tasked by a young woman to find the true killer of the man who took advantage of her. Her brother has confessed and the whole family is in an uproar. Lily takes a more visible part in the mystery and Archie, is once again gathering clues, yet clueless about the solution. Fun, fun for Nero Wolf and Archie fans.

The series continues... Nero Wolfe is forced to get involved in a case involving Archie's friend's niece, and he's not happy about it. The lazy detective must determine who killed a cad who took advantage of the young niece then turned up dead. Goldsborough keeps the series alive with the same cast of characters and even updates things with Archie using a PC instead of a typewriter. But Nero Wolfe is still lazy. An enjoyable quick read.
The first Neto Wolfe story to tackle a social problem. We've had political problems but never social ones. Goldsborough tried hard to be true to the period of the book but the problem is a modern one, well not modern, but not usual in mysteries until quite recently. For a foray into new territory I liked the book very much.
