Death on a Deadline

Robert Goldsborough, Author Bantam Books $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-553-05193-3
Goldsborough's Murder in E Minor authentically revived the late Rex Stout's famed Nero Wolfe and company, busy again in this appealing sequel. The unbeatable sleuth's trusty assistant, Archie Goodwin, tells of events Wolfe investigates without stirring from his Manhattan brownstone. Convinced that elderly Harriet Haverhill was murdered, the detective disputes the official verdict of suicide. Proud of her family-owned newspaper, the Gazette, Haverhill had rejected lucrative offers from a sleazy tycoon who wants to turn the daily into another of his sensationalistic scandal sheets. Mrs. Haverhill's kin and other stockholders seem eager to sell out, however, and Wolfe intends to prove that one of them is a killer for profit. He does, as Archie assembles all concerned to hear the great man pronounce judgment, ending a dandy story. (May)
