      Archie Goodwin drums up trade to bolster a sagging bank balance, however, the client is obstreperous, headstrong and lies to Nero Wolfe. Inspector Cramer astonishes both the Old Brownstone detectives with an offer to trade information. Wolfe, too, becomes so desperate that he decides to pull out of the case and lump the expenses; Archie plays a trick to keep them snooping. The murderer is exposed as he brings a briefcase bomb into Wolfe's office. Archie enjoys the sight of his favorite foe, Lt. Rowcliff, forced to admit blabbing police secrets and seeing Cramer reprimand Rowcliff.
