Prisoner's Base finds Nero Wolfe's legman Archie guilt-ridden and seeking the detective's help. Three women have been murdered, one a towel company heiress. Is her fortune-hunting husband involved, or were greedy business associates behind her death? As usual Wolfe's sleuthing talents puzzle out the truth. Michael Pritchard's clear, strong, and pleasant reading supports the tale and helps keep the atmosphere charged. Entertaining and suspenseful; recommended.
