A couple of years ago I posted a few messages about three Nero Wolfe novels I read, written by Robert Goldsborough.  I recently acquired a copy of "Murder, Stage Left" which is another Wolfe mystery written by the same author.  I finished reading this book last week.

Like the other Goldsborough novels I posted about, this was also a well-written book, but I would rank it a little below the other stories I read.  Without ruining the book for others, I can say that the story starts out with Wolfe and Goodwin investigating a possible crime, and then goes into a related crime.  Many suspects are therefore interviewed more than once which makes the story somewhat redundant.  I still highly recommend this book, and I will be looking for other Wolfe mysteries by this author.
