A Family Affair is the last Nero Wolfe detective novel by Rex Stout, published by the Viking Press in 1975. The prolific author, who had penned more than 70 stories in the internationally successful Nero Wolfe series since 1934, died at the age of 88, less than six months after publication of this last book. A waiter at Rusterman's Restaurant turns up at Wolfe's front door late one night, claiming that a man is going to kill him.

Rex Stout's A Family Affair (1975) is the last of his 47 Nero Wolfe novels and collections of shorter pieces. It was published just three months before the author's death. I had read all Wolfe books in the 1970's - 1990's and am returning now to a selected few of them curious about how the passage of time - both my chronological time and the fictional time of the novels - has influenced my reception of Mr. Sto "'Warrants to take Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin.

A Family Affair was the last Nero Wolfe book written by the wonderful Rex Stout, and I loved it. When you commit a crime, ultimately you must pay for it (one way or another). the feelings of betrayal, anger and overall sadness in this book to me seemed palpable, it takes time to bring yourself to believe the truth that has been staring you right in the face all along, and when you do see it ...its bittersweet, but you are resolved that you must see it through. this book displayed real emotion. I gave it 5 stars

"It's possible to tell your mind what to do,only when your mind agrees with you". Archie Goodwin
Nero Wolfe, Archie Gooowin and Fritz are the center of mystery, murder and mayhem. They have a supporting cast of henchmen, gun molls, gangsters, petty thieves, con-artists, entertainers and, of course, murderers aplenty!
Nero is gruff, grumpy and always right! Archie is a wise-cracking, tough guy with street smarts and a way with women. Fritz is a Chef Extrodinaire who is Nero Wolfe's "Man Friday".
If you have read one of the Nero Wolfe books; you have probably read most of them also! I know I have!
Rex Stout created Nero Wolfe two decades before I was born and finished this last two decades after I was born, by which time I had read most of the marvelous series and I remember when A Family Affair was released. It is rare for a writer's last work about a character to be as fine as his first, and most fail, but not Stout. What a wonderful coda to the series!
Nero Wolfe's last great adventure brings the series to a close but since the books (as has been said before) are infinitely re-readable you can start over at the beginning and get to know them all over again. Electronic versions and Audible editions for about half of them make for great before bed reading and/or listening. Intellectual comfort food, if you will.
Did not realize this was Rex Stout's last Nero Wolfe story and perhaps his best.. good story line with great character development. If you are a Nero Wolfe fan don't miss this one.
Stout's book was of murder, of course, but mainly a story of betrayal. Stout had been greatly affected and no doubt outraged by Nixon's betrayal of his office and his American family. He reflects it in this tale of Wolfe's betrayal by a member of his family.
Rex Stout never fails to intrigue and impress me. His style is easy reading yet educational. Murder and mayhem, yes, but eloquent in its presentation. Rereading any of his books is as good as it gets. One can know the ending, and still enjoy reading the book again. There are only a few authors that affect me this way.
Another great Nero and Archie outing
