    First of all, I’m a big fan of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe books. SPOILER! SPOILER! SPOILER! „A family affair“ is a story I wanted to read for a very long time but couldn’t get hold of the book. Finally I managed it (thanks a*azon :) and I have to say, I wasn’t disappointed. Orrie Cather, often hired to help in investigations and seen as a friend, became the murderer of three people. And not only that, one of the victims was murdered right under Nero Wolfes nose, at his home. Even though I knew whodunnit before I started reading, it was a great story and I really liked the „solution“ how to punish a man who betrayed them all in the worst way possible. A must read.

    I am a HUGE fan of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe books and that one was totally a must-read! (Though it was really hard to GET it, because apparently it’s ages old and nobody ever bothered to re-print it.) **SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER** Still. As a die-hard Nero Wolfe fan, of course I just HAD to read the book in which Orrie Cather – trusted investigator and friend of Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin – became a murderer. And it was really a great read! Even though I knew who the killer was right from the start. Unbelievable that Orrie could do a thing like that and think he’d get away with it! But well... I guess, out of the “Three Musketeers” (+ Archie) he was the least likable one and... yeah. It was a good way to get him out of the picture. Nice. I can only recommend it.
