Near-fine first edition with slight bumping to corners, and a small strip of bleaching along the bottom of the boards. Slight bruising to bottom of spine, and some foxing to page block. In a very good unclipped dust jacket with slight chipping to corners and spine.
Follow the world's greatest detective, Nero Wolfe, on a trail of money, mayhem, and murder in three cases of capital crime.
The trail of bodies begins with the death of a self-made millionaire, a fortune in uranium, and the perfect weapon . . . which no longer exists. Then it's on to a rural lodge to teach two arrogant billionaires, a foreign ambassador, and a famous diplomat that murder is bad for business. Finally, it's a case of politics making the strangest of bedfellows when a fake millionaire becomes a real corpse in the state capital and the evidence has Nero and Archie in the hot seat.
