Master sleuth Nero Wolfe s small circle of friends is limited to his assistant, Archie Goodwin; his chef, Fritz; and Lon Cohen, the head man at the New York Gazette. Cohen kws more about the city s power structure than any man in Manhattan, and for years, he happily passed Wolfe information in return for the odd exclusive scoop. But w Cohen needs Wolfe s help, for the Gazette is ailing and the vultures have begun to circle.Scottish newspaper magnate Ian MacLaren plans to gut the paper and turn it into a sex-filled conservative rag. Standing in his way is the company s chief shareholder, Gazette heir Harriet Haverhill. But when the aged Ms. Haverhill dies in an apparent suicide, one remains to resist the Scot s advances except Wolfe. MacLaren may be fierce, but when the cause is just, Nero Wolfe kws how to play dirtytoo.
