(From the publisher):
Nero Wolfe is the outrageously brilliant orchid-growing gourmet whose sheer genius at dazzling deduction has no peer. Together with his confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin, he must help a party girl who is expecting a big present -- an eight-million-dollar happy birthday inheritance. The only catch is that there is a fifty-fifty chance she will be murdered first.
