A brilliant Rex Stout murder mystery featuring Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin
A bomb explodes in the desk drawer of a top TV executive. Was it intended for him or the man who opened the drawer? They each had enemies enough to die a dozen times over. Was it the jealous wife or the ambitious partner? The secretary who got passed around like an inter-office memo? Or the man who couldn’t wash the blood off his hands?
Nero Wolfe didn’t want any part of it - but he was up to his neck in the toughest case of his career!
“It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore.” (The New York Times Book Review)
