Robert Goldsborough (b. 1937) is an American author best known for
continuing Rex Stout's famous Nero Wolfe series. Born in Chicago,
he attended Northwestern University, and upon graduation went to
work for the Associated Press, beginning a lifelong career in
journalism that would include long periods at the Chicago
Tribune and Advertising Age.
While at the Tribune, Goldsborough began writing mysteries in the voice of Rex Stout, the creator of iconic sleuths Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin. Goldsborough's first novel starring Wolfe, Murder in E Minor (1986), was met with acclaim from both critics and devoted fans, winning a Nero Award from the Wolfe Pack. Six more novels followed, including Death on Deadline (1987) and Fade to Black (1990). In 2005, Goldsborough published Three Strikes You're Dead, the first in an original series starring Chicago Tribune reporter Snap Malek. Murder, Stage Left (2017) is his most recent novel.
"A virtually perfect homage to the Rex Stout originals, from the orchids to the beer to the gourmet food and, best of all, to Archie's bemused, self-deprecating narration. Comfort food for fans of classic mysteries." -Booklist
