Publisher's summary

There are few people Nero Wolfe respects, and Lon Cohen of the New York Gazette is one of them. So when Cohen asks for a favor, Wolfe is inclined to listen.

According to Cohen, someone wants to kill the Gazette's gossip columnist, Cameron Clay. Death threats are a regular hazard for Clay, who's hurled insults and accusations at every bold-faced name in the five boroughs. But the latest threats have carried a more sinister tone. The columnist has narrowed his potential killers down to five people.

When Clay turns up dead, the cops deem it a suicide. The bigwigs at the Gazette don't agree, so they retain Wolfe to figure out which of the suspects had the mettle to pull the trigger.

Good book, wrong reader

I like the way the author keeps to the spirit of Nero Wolfe and Archie and the rest of them. He is true to the spirit. Alas the book would have been more enjoyable with a different reader. I swear I heard an occasional Irish lilt in Archie's portrayal..and that's when he didn't sound like Albert Campion or Lord Peter. The reader is perfect for the British cozy. He should stick to that and the publisher should find a reader who can do Archie, Saul, Lon and the rest of the city dwellers in the voice Stout .. And now Goldsborough...meant them to have.
