Nero Wolfe, a remarkable and unique private investigator solves murders without leaving his home. His group of operatives do the leg work for him and report the results. In this case, a pair of gold spider earrings, presumably the only pair in the city, is mentioned time and time again. Wolfe is able to determine the murderer from a group of several suspects only a few of whom he has ever seen. Good, fast read.
