Overview

Nero Wolfe, the epicurean detective, and his wry and irreverent legman, Archie, team up again to discover why a law office clerk has been murdered for the unlikely offense of submitting a manuscript for publication. With a cryptic quotation from the Bible and a list of names in the dead clerk's pocket as the only clues, Wolfe and Archie take the murderous manuscript to task.
