A Nero Wolfe mystery ...

Inside flap: In cool Manhattan the ad game is both crisp and cutthroat. But when two competing agencies begin producing look-alike commercials for rival soft-drink companies. Mills, an executive with one of the firms, wants to see Nero Wolfe to discuss finding the leak. Then a young executive is found bludgeoned to death in a trendy Village apartment, and the search for an agency mole becomes a search for a murderer.

While Archie does the legwork needed to gather clues, Nero Wolfe must digest the facts of one of the most unappetizing and unsettling cases he's been served in a long time.
