In his early teens, Robert Goldsborough complained to his mother one summer day that he had “nothing to do.” An avid reader of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe mysteries, she gave him a magazine serialization, and he became hooked on the adventures of the corpulent Nero and his irreverent sidekick, Archie Goodwin.
When Rex Stout passed away, Bob's mother lamented that “Now there won’t be any more Nero Wolfe stories.”
“There might be one more,” Bob mused, and began writing an original Wolfe novel for his mother as a 1978 Christmas present. This story, Murder in E Minor, remained a bound typescript for years, but in the mid-’80s, Goldsborough received permission from the Stout estate to publish it. Murder in E Minor first appeared as a Bantam hardcover, then in paperback, and six more Nero Wolfe novels eventually followed–all to favorable reviews.
