Story Synopsis:
      The redoubtable sleuth resolves another murder mystery as he obligates himself to an old chef accused of carving a corpse. Archie Goodwin engineers such a masterly preliminary step in exposing the culprit that Nero Wolfe laughs in tribute. The murderer even spends the night at the old brownstone following an attack on her life by an enraged girl friend of the victim.
