(From the publisher):
Nero Wolfe is the incredibly brilliant orchid-growing gourmet whose sheer genius at daring deduction has no peer. Together with his confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin, the big man tackles a most curious case involving a hungry millionaire restauranteur, the $45,000 champion bull he wants to barbecue, and an angry young man named Clyde who bet $10,000 that the barbecue would never take place. He is right. Everyone loses his appetite when the main dish is discovered pawing at Clyde's mangled body, especially Nero Wolfe who is left with the unappetizing job of solving the bizarre murder.
