Introduction by Marilyn Wallace. The 'World of Rex Stout' at the end shows a letter from his British publisher regarding this book and Stout's response. ; Nero Wolfe; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall; 208 pages;

"Before he died, Richard Valdon had made a lot of scenes. Nobody could deny it, above all his beautiful young wife. Now it was Nero Wolfe's task to retrace the famous novelist's long line of love affairs and come up with a missing mother -- and a murderer."
" When an abandoned baby is left on her doorstep, the young socialite widow knows only too well the identity of the father: her deceased philanderer of a husband. But who is the mother? The case seems like child's play to Wolfe, until the first dead body. While the police nurse their grudges against him, and the widow nurses Archie, the genius sleuth and his sidekick look for the hand that rocked the cradle. But nothing can pacify the killer, who's found the formula for murder - and is determined to milk it for all it's worth. "
