This is the third book in the Chip Harrison series, and certainly displays the unique characterizations that Lawrence Block is justly famous for. I have read some of his books, but not with kind of fervor I approach other masters of the mystery genre. I heard about this series having a Nero Wolfe styled character (who may have a delusional belief that Wolfe and Archie Goodwin really exist). Block weaves a story that absolutely pays tribute to Rex Stout’s style, without ever becoming merely parody.
He also give a nice shout out to Ross MacDonald, one my favorite writer of detective stories.

A Wonderful Tribute to Nero WolfeReviewed in the United States on 21 April 2020
I like the older ones betterReviewed in the United States on 30 July 2015
I am a Lawrence Block fan. I like the older ones better. Not positive about this but I heard that Lawrence Block passed away years ago and his son is writing the newer books. I don't know for SURE so not to spread rumors.
1970's pulp!Reviewed in the United States on 19 September 2011
This is an out of print book and not one of Block's best known characters. Chip Harrison only has two murder mysteries (the Tulip Caper), and there's two lame 'Catcher in the Rye' coming of age books (what a waste). If you like Bernie Rhodenbarr, then you'll like Chip Harrison. If you like Matthew Scudder, well this probably isn't for you. The only other place I could find Chip Harrison stories were in the short story collection 'Enough Rope'.
