Introduction by William G. Tapply.
"A missing membership card, a machine-gunning mobster, Nero Wolfe asking Archie Goodwin to seduce a lovely young lady? It can't be true, but when murder strikes Archie's rival, Wolfe takes the case."
"The latest adventures of the famous orchid-growing beer-drinking, self-proclaimed genius, Nero Wolfe, are more exciting, more violent than ever before. This new, full-length, mystery novel not only gives Nero full play for all his egocentricities but also provides Archie with a satisfying number of opportunities to risk his neck, to fall into what he never calls love, and to be baffled simultaneously by an exceptionally well-concealed murderer and an infuriatingly noncommittal Nero.
