Ex-library with numerous stamps (mostly marked through) , labels, and other library markings, library bookplate inside cover, pocket and due date slip inside back cover. This book has been rebound by the library in sturdy, decorative cloth boards. It may be a first edition, but impossible to tell for sure. Aside from the library markings, the pages are browned with a little spotting here and there. The text appears to be fine. All in all, a fairly nice reading copy. ; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall;

"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.
