The incredibly brilliant Nero Wolfe is the orchid-growing gourmet whose sheer genius at deduction is always dead certain. But he takes a daring gamble when he agrees to make his $20,000 fee contingent on his solving a murder overheard by millions, but witnesses by none. . .because no one in the listening audience could see who slipped the cyanide to horse-racing tipster Cyril Orchard on a radio talk show. So while his confidential assistant Archie Goodwin tracks a suspect to Atlantic City, Wolfe plays a long shot at home that involves blackmail, betrayal and a beautiful woman; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
