"For the past six Sundays, splashy televangelist Barnabas Bay has found a nasty surprise in the collection. . . Bible quotations twisted into death threats. When one of Reverend Bay’s assistants beseeches Wolfe to find the wicked perpetrator, he refuses--even though the almighty bank account is in need of salvation. Never one to shirk his Christian duty, Wolfe’s faithful legman Archie Goodwin refers the case to longtime friend and fellow private detective Fred Durkin. Eleven days later someone at the Silver Spire receives a premature call to meet his maker--and Durkin is charged with murder. As Archie searches for clues and prays for a miracle, the incomparable Nero Wolfe finds himself up against a sinfully clever killer in one of the most baffling--and damning--cases of his career."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
