A politician is murdered by a sniper during a baseball game and his widow hires detectives Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin to solve the case.
Robert Goldsborough (b. 1937) is an American author best known for
continuing Rex Stout's famous Nero Wolfe series. Born in Chicago,
he attended Northwestern University and upon graduation went to
work for the Associated Press, beginning a lifelong career in
journalism that would include long periods at the Chicago
Tribune and Advertising Age.
While at the Tribune, Goldsborough began writing mysteries in the voice of Rex Stout, the creator of iconic sleuths Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. Goldsborough's first novel starring Wolfe, Murder in E Minor (1986), was met with acclaim from both critics and devoted fans, winning a Nero Award from the Wolfe Pack. Nine more Wolfe mysteries followed, including Death on Deadline (1987) and Fade to Black (1990). His most recent book is Archie in the Crosshairs (2015).
