      Archie Goodwin sets himself up as a murder suspect so as to prod Nero Wolfe into solving a murder and to abandon Wolfe's "training" for combat duty in Germany. Lily Rowen makes a scintillating appearance, only to be suspected of the murder. Archie cuts a dashing figure as a major in the U.S. Army Intelligence Service.
