Death of an Art Collector

(2019)
(Book 14 in the Nero Wolfe Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
An art hoarder's suspicious death paints a nasty picture for Nero Wolfe.

No matter how fabulously he's being courted, infamously dour "art hog" Arthur Wordell isn't keen on favoring the new Guggenheim Museum with his extensive collection. Even at the urging of his beloved daughter, Nadia. Then, the night after the museum's fete, Arthur takes a twenty-story plunge from the window of his Times Square office. Nadia thinks it's no mere coincidence.

Eccentric, yes. Suicidal, no. Private investigator Nero Wolfe and his assistant, Archie Goodwin, agree. Especially after eyeballing Arthur's enemies and sycophants, including his ex-wife, a covetous curator, a troika of obsequious advisors, and an outre Greenwich Village artist anxious to see her work out of storage and on the walls of the "Guggie."

For Wolfe, there's a problem: Arthur didn't leave a will. Without a beneficiary not a soul in Arthur's circle is set to benefit from his death. Nor do they show any customary indication of guilt. If anybody can solve a seemingly unsolvable masterpiece of murder, it's Wolfe. Unfortunately, this time, New York's artful investigator is, admittedly, stumped.

Continuing the acclaimed series - which also includes The Battered Badge, Archie Meets Nero Wolfe, Murder in the Ball Park, Archie in the Crosshairs, and Murder, Stage Left - Nero Award - winning author Robert Goldsborough "does a masterly job with the Wolfe legacy" (Booklist).
