The Last Drive

Read by Ben Tucker

(4.5 stars; 35 reviews)

From celebrated crime author Rex Stout, creator of the long-running Nero Wolfe detective stories, comes this early mystery, that served as an inspiration to the first Nero Wolfe novel Fer-de-Lance, of a golfer who, while out on the greens, clutches his chest and keels over from an apparent heart attack. But the coroner rules it a poisoning, and the president of the country club, Canby Rankin, takes it upon himself to track down the killer. - Summary by Ben Tucker (2 hr 8 min)

(4 stars)

Fun novela by Rex Stout! Not as complicated as his Nero Wolfe mysteries as I guessed early on how it was done, but still a pleasant read.

So-So Mystery

Easy to figure out “who dunnit” and why. I hope reader learns the word is cavalry and not Calvary.
