When a powerful government official scheduled to speak to a group of millionaires is found dead, it is an event worthy of the notice of the great Wolfe. He and Archie untangle a deadly feud between top government agencies. While the business world clamors for a solution, Wolfe patiently lays a trap that will net him a killer worth his weight in gold.

Narrator Michael Prichard excels as the brilliant detective, gourmet, and grouch, Nero Wolfe. Prichard's polished, smooth style is the only way to feature the sophisticated, egotistical detective who solves crimes with an incisive mind and an active assistant, one Archie Goodwin. This mystery involves two brutal murders tied to the antagonism between an industrial association and a governmental regulatory agency. Predictably and reassuringly, justice prevails, and the listener knows that even if "they don't write 'em like that anymore," they still tell them with panache and charm.
