This book is excellent. It's one of the best Nero Wolfe mysteries IMHO.... Archie is a bit rougher than inl;ater books...and to great effect. Nero is as sharpas ever.
#2 in the series...but you do not need to read these in any order.
The corners on the book are a bit rough...but I found this at a now out of business used book store... I mre than got my monies worth.
Full of great characterization, more than one mystery and a good deal of action....
