"A car accident strands Wolfe and Archie in the midst of an upstate family feud over $45,000 worth of prize bull-a feud that turns ugly when the beef in question is found pawing the mangled body of one of the family scions. Solving the mystery is no problem-but alas, the evidence keeps disappearing."
This book includes the first meeting between Archie Goodwin and Lily Rowan, who will become a fixture in his life through the end of the series.
