"Archie Goodwin has troubles too. Nero Wolfe, for instance. Like the day my horticulturist boss discovered there were only three black orchids in the world -- and they belonged to someone else! Picture Nero Wolfe maddened by lust -- fatso would do anything to get those orchids. All yours truly had to do was sweep up the bodies.
Nero Wolfe is determined to have his heart's desire. To get it he conceals evidence. . . Hides witnesses. . . Leads police on a wild-goose chase . . . And locks himself in a lethal gas chamber with a killer's hand at the valve!
The reader is also "Cordially Invited to Meet Death" as Archie Goodwin trips over an alligator and lands in the middle of murder."
A duo of Nero Wolfe stories.
