Publisher's Summary

A Mets fan with a phony name and a millionaire client arrives just in time to provide a case that will allow Nero Wolfe to pay the rent. The bizarre visitors are in a frenzy about a death-trap explosion in the discreet whiskey drawer of a top TV executive. To crack this case of bombs and bourbon, the indolent genius and his energetic assistant must pick their way though corporate chicanery, vile ambition - and a healthy swig of murder.
Stout fellow: listen to all of our Nero Wolfe mysteries, including classic radio programs!

Nero was stumped!

I always enjoy a Nero Wolf story. This time everyone kept coming up clueless. I don't ever remember seeing such a time when there was nothing, our great detectives, his men, the police, all dispondent. Then a lie was told, it opened the stale thinking up and let the light in. What a change in Nero's persona. The reader has the tone and voices down perfectly. Archie and Nero especially, just come to life!
