Series: Nero Wolfe

Summary (From the publisher):

Private Eye Nero Wolfe had had several sharp but long-distance encounters in the past with powerful mystery man of crime Arnold Zeck. That Zeck was a blackmailer was obvious. That he was perhaps the most potent and utterly ruthless of all underworld characters seemed more than possible. At any rate Wolfe had once told Archie that if he ever had to come to grips with Zeck he would disappear first, so as not to endanger Archie, his orchids, or his old brownstone in lower Manhattan.

Nero Wolfe was a man of his word. When the day arrived that Zeck interfered in his investigations just once more than was good for business Wolfe quietly vanished. The final conflict had begun.
