A car accident in upstate New York strands Nero Wolfe, America's largest detective, and Archie Goodwin, his confidential assistant, in the midst of a family feud. The feud, over $45,000 worth of prize bull, turns ugly when the beef in question is found pawing the mangled body of a family scion. Solving the mystery is no problem - but, alas, the evidence keeps disappearing.

Critic reviews

"It's always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." ( The New York Times)
"What's not to like about a Nero Wolfe mystery? The mysteries are short, cleverly plotted, well paced, and, if you're an audiobook listener, wonderfully read by Michael Prichard....Prichard has read nearly 20 books in Stout's series and has mastered Wolfe's deep, meditative voice and Archie's spry, chipper voice, as well as those of a host of other characters we recognize from one recording to the next."

Great story, poor audio

I love this story, but the audio is muddy to the point that the narrator seems to lisp. I know Michael Prichard does not have a lisp--it's the sound quality at fault. It's still a very enjoyable part of the Nero Wolfe series, but buy a print version or an audio CD set.

See Nero Climb – Superior Nero Wolfe

Some Buried Caesar is one of the better of the uniformly excellent Nero Wolfe series. Although the audio is not totally crisp, I did not experience any muddiness experienced by others and there were no pops and drops I experienced on some of this series. This story shows Nero Wolfe at his most active – climbing, jumping and even going to the fair! Lots of fun, great characters, and an enjoyable mystery. Hard to beat that combination.
