A remarkably rare black orchid at a flower show lures Nero Wolfe from his comfortable brownstone. But before the detective and his sidekick, Archie Goodwin, can stop and smell the roses, a diabolically daring murder puts a blight on the proceedings. The murderer to be weeded out is definitely not a garden-variety killer.
Wolfe must also throw his considerable weight into another thorny case, this one involving a rich society widow bedeviled by poison-pen letters and a poisonous plot as black as Wolfe's orchids - with roots even more twisted.
"It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." (
New York Times)
