Story Synopsis:
      Nero Wolfe's maneuvers to expose the murderer get Archie Goodwin wounded in the shoulder and nearly a trip to the morgue as a third strangled victim. Hundreds of flower lovers from the Manhattan Flower Club invade the old brownstone home, but one leaves as a corpse. A second contingent (Inspector Cramer's homicide cops) is tolerated until Cramer orders the office sealed. Wolfe is so furious that he refuses to feed the police and tackles the case without a fee. Even Fritz Brenner becomes physical as he prevents a suspect from leaving the house. Wolfe solves the case and Cramer has his nose wiped.
