Arrives in 3-7 Business Days
Its a wily killer who dares to strike on Nero Wolfes hallowed turfand leave a corpse strangled with Wolfes own soup-stained tie. But no sooner does the gourmandizing sleuth clean up this first course of murder than he faces a gun-toting wife who serves up a confession of homicidal intentonly to become the sole suspect when the corpus delicti is found. Its murder la carte when the third course is served: a cop-hating landlady brings Wolfe counterfeit cashthat leads to genuine murder. Its up to Wolfe to see that the malefactors get their just deserts.
