Over My Dead Body

Over My Dead Body (A Nero Wolfe Mystery)

Over My Dead Body by Rex Stout

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

While this Wolfe/Goodwin outing wasn’t terrible, it wasn’t one of their best either. Yes, you have to ignore racism in so many early 20th century books, but this started in this book on the first page.

Until I reached the 50% mark there wasn’t much of the usual Wolfe/Goodwin banter and I found the plot confused and confusing. From the half way point the story does pick up though.

While I should have guessed whodunnit, I didn’t and I think that might have been my general lack of interest in the result. I always found this series very uneven (the modern equivalent would be the Kinsey Millhone series) and one average book won’t stop me reading further.
