Story Synopsis:
      Archie Goodwin's favorite flame holds a roping contest in her penthouse, but is roped up in a murder investigation. Nero Wolfe gets more than a blue grouse dinner as Lily Rowen hires him to make the cops look bad. His office is the scene of action--a cowgirl pulls a gun on Archie; two cowgirls brawl there; a cowboy smacks a suspect during a talk with Wolfe.
