"Anthony D. Perry, the tycoon director of the Metropolitan Trust Company, is one of Nero Wolfe's best clients. When $30,000 is stolen from the office of the senior vice-president of his corporation, Perry runs to the master sleuth for help. But Wolfe has no intention of discussing the event as it is the hour of his 'prescribed exercise' . . . throwing darts and tending to his 10,000 rare orchids.
"This leaves Archie Goodwin to do the legwork. Clara Fox, however, brings the case back into Wolfe's territory. She's been accused of stealing $30,000 from her boss and asks Wolfe to help prove her innocence. The Rubber Band, formed at the turn of the century in Silver City, Nevada, is the key to Clara's case. The consequences of this legacy - murder, lynching, and blackmail - become a burden almost as weighty as the great detective himself. "; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
