- I have to confess I'm stumped too. But I warn you, if it's anything like "Sol Pansy" I'll be forced to pass among the membership with a baseball bat.
- I can't get with Fer-de-Lance. Finishing the last few chapters seemed
like work when I re-read it a couple of months ago. Maybe it's
because Wolfe and Archie are brand-new in FdL. From there they evolve
quickly, and by the time Too Many Cooks rolls out they've become the
familiar characters who compel page-turning.
Others on my list of least-favorites are Disguise for Murder and Help
Wanted, Male. Heck, listing the bottom-dwellers hurts my head even
more than picking three or four favorites does.
