Robert Goldsborough brings Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin back to life as he continues the series after Rex Stout's death. This is the second of his Nero Wolfe books.
The first corpse is slated to be a newspaper. If Ian MacLaren, sleazy king of Britain's scandal sheets, succeeds in taking over the Gazette, this respectable publication will die. Archie Goodwin is astonished when Nero Wolfe decides to stop him. But Wolfe's public c.all for defense of the Gazette leads to a bullet in someone's brain. The NYPD calls it suicide. . .but Wolfe recognizes the byline of a murderer working under deadline.
