Summary

After the heir to a frozen-food fortune gets iced, Wolfe’s right-hand man, Archie Goodwin, becomes a suspect
When Lily Rowan doesn’t laugh at his jokes, Archie Goodwin knows something is wrong. Her niece Noreen has been running around with Sparky Linville, a club-hopping bad boy who is the terror of Manhattan nightlife. And the last time she went out with him, Noreen wasn’t herself when she came home. All she would tell her aunt was that she had been assaulted. 
Springing into action, Goodwin waits for Linville outside of Morgana’s, a chrome-and-glass palace that sits like a wart on Second Avenue. They nearly come to blows, but Linville’s bodyguard intervenes, and Goodwin retreats to plan his next move. In the morning Linville is dead, and Goodwin is the chief suspect. For years he has helped rotund genius Nero Wolfe out of jams, and now it is time for the master detective to return the favor.

Don't waste your time

Poorly written, insensitively handled, unimaginative story. The characters are stereotypical and have no depth. I can't get enough of Nero Wolfe but this story is just terrible.

Excellent book!

I really enjoyed this Nero Wolfe book! It was nice to have the traditional characters in play--Fred, Saul, Lon included. I love Lily Rowan and hearing about her family was most enjoyable. Great narrator, fun story, wonderful combination of story elements.
