The Second Confession

The Second Confession is a 1949 Nero Wolfe mystery novel by Rex Stout. This is a great series that has held up well, and I'm enjoying reading them. The characters are unique and engaging, and the plots are well-constructed. I'd highly recommend these if you like mysteries.

This book takes place in June.

from the back of the book:
A fanatic millionaire, a lawless politician, and a gangland boss all wanted Nero Wolfe to do things their way. Money was no object -neither was life or death...

An explosive adventure in murder and double-dealing featuring Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin.
I have also read these from the Nero Wolfe series:


  1. I've always loved the Nero Wolf series and remember reading this one quite some time ago. It was rather true to the times with its reference to the Am. Communist Party, which McCarthy was determined to dissolve.

    1. Yes, I found myself substituting "Russian" for "Communist" and feeling like it sounded quite modern ;)

  2. Haven't ever tried one of these. Another time period, but russians and communist could be interchanged--true. ;)

  3. As I've told you before, I need to check out Rex Stout. I'm always on the look out for a good mystery. Happy weekend and hope you are doing well. Hugs-Erika

  4. Sounds like a great series to read 😁. Thanks for the recommendation and wishing you a happy Friday! J 😊 x
