These are two very enjoyable Nero Wolfe mysteries, and at this point there is no one who can match Michael Pritchard in presenting the audio versions. the stories are clever and so typically Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. I found these the perfect listen to's while taking a long and tedious road trip, and Nero Wolfe audios are among my husband's favorites also. reading Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe mysteries is a must do treat for mystery lovers, his books are timeless. the next best thing is a Michael Pritchard audioThe Death of Amelia Marsh: A Sally Nimitz Mystery (Book 1) (Sally Nimitz Mysteries)

A welcome distraction for Wolfe fans. While worthy of the Wolfe name, neither of these stories has the amount of plot and character depth as most of Stout's other novels. But that by no means, means that these stories aren't an interesting listen.
Prichard of course delivers the subtle differences of every character in his inimitable way.
Not Quite Dead Enough is the best of the two, and is in my opinion, one of Stout's best short stories.
Booby Trap shows a bit of a 'dark side' of Wolfe, wherein, ***spoiler*** he persuades a murderer to commit suicide near the end. But overall this collection is a must-read for Wolfe fanatics, as is pretty much every other Wolfe novel.

I bought this product in the CD version and received the BBC Audio edition rather than the one from Audio Partners. The first story, "Not Quite Dead Enough" was incomplete. The whole first chapter and beginning of the second were omitted. I opted for a refund from Amazon rather than a replacement since every copy of the BBC Audio edition is likely to be similarly defective.
