From the Publisher:
Three women have been strangled - and Archie feels responsible. One of the women was expecting a big birthday present, an $8 million inheritance; she just had to live until June 30 to receive it. Unfortunately, she didn't make the date. First published in 1952, Prisoner's Base sees Archie's boss, detective Nero Wolfe, bring together all the pieces to solve the puzzle.
