Then drop everything and go meet the master. Fer-de-lance is the first book in a LONG series that combines the best of America’s hard-boiled detectives (in the person of Archie Goodwin) and of British cerebral detectives (in the person of Nero Wolfe, the obese orchid-fancier who refuses to leave his home on West 35th Street, Manhattan, New York.

Sarah Hoyt has reimagined Nero and Archie 10,000 years from Manhattan. In the first book in what I hope is a long and lovely series she sets up the perfect vehicle for two 120th Century detectives—an interstellar craft named “West 35th.” Jump in and enjoy!
