There are few people Nero Wolfe respects, and Lon Cohen of the New York Gazette is one of them. So when Cohen asks for a favor, Wolfe is inclined to listen.
According to Cohen, someone wants to kill the Gazette's gossip columnist, Cameron Clay. Death threats are a regular hazard for Clay, who's hurled insults and accusations at every bold-faced name in the five boroughs. But the latest threats have carried a more sinister tone. The columnist has narrowed his potential killers down to five people.
When Clay turns up dead, the cops deem it a suicide. The bigwigs at the Gazette don't agree, so they retain Wolfe to figure out which of the suspects had the mettle to pull the trigger.

Good book, wrong reader

Rex Stout books narrated by Michael Prichard are much better.
His interpretation of the characters and their 'voices' just didn't ring true to the characters. Michael Prichard does a much better job. This narrator works way to hard at acting the book and distracts from the story. He actually makes the characters seem silly.
