Does Any One like the Nero Wolfe Novels by Robert Goldsborough?

Thanks to the A&E Nero Wolfe TV Series I have started reading the Wolfe Novels by Rex Stout.

I have notice that more Wolfe Novels were written in late 80's by
Robert Goldsborough. I think he wrote 5 Books.
Does anyone have an opinion about these Books?

They're okay. Not as good as Stout's originals, but as I recall they were readable. I'd recommend reading through all the Stout books, though, before I try the Goldsboroughs.

I enjoyed the show, I should probably pick up some of the books.

It's a terrific series and holds up pretty well. You should give a few a try. It'll probably take a couple of books to catch on to the idiosyncrasies of the characters and the series... but if you've seen the TV show, that should help.

Goldsborough has a new NERO WOLFE novel that came out a couple of weeks ago, "Murder in the Ballpark".
