Introduction by Walter Mosley. Recently adapted to TV by A&E; Nero Wolfe; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall; 271 pages;

"When is an after-dinner speaker never boring? When he is murdered before he gets a chance to speak. Cheney Boone from the Bureau of Price Regulation is murdered before addressing the National Industrial Association. Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin unravel the tangled hatreds among those who enforce government regulations, free enterprise advocates, and greedy civil servants to ferret out the killer. "
"Balancing on the edge of financial ruin, the orchid-loving detective grudgingly accepts the case. Soon a second victim is found bludgeoned to death, a missing stenographer's tape causes an uproar, and the dead man speaks, after a fashion. While the business world clamors for a solution, Nero Wolfe patiently lays a trap that will net him a killer worth his weight in gold. "
