Threats against a televangelist lead Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin into a murder case in this “brisk and beguiling page-turner” (Publishers Weekly). Staten Island would be forgettable were it not for the gleaming Tabernacle of the Silver Spire, where thousands of congregants come every Sunday to hear the sermons of Barnabas Bay. Millions more tune in on television, giving the good Reverend international fame, and a chance to spread the gospel from New York City’s harbor all the way to South Korea. But threatening notes have been appearing in the collection bag, suggesting that one of the faithful has decided it’s time this good shepherd get the hook. Believing organized religion is nothing more than a scam, rotund sleuth Nero Wolfe refuses to investigate the threats, instead recommending veteran investigator Fred Durkin for the case. But when Durkin is accused of murdering the Reverend’s assistant, Wolfe fights to clear his name. He may not be a Christian, but he will always help a brother in need.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s time to state the blasphemous but no-less-obvious truth: Goldsborough does a better job with Archie Goodwin, Nero Wolfe, and company than did their creator, Rex Stout.” Booklist
“Wolfe’s chef, Fritz Brenner, NYPD homicide detective Lionel Cramer, and fully realized minor characters flesh out this brisk and beguiling page-turner.” Publishers Weekly
