From the Publisher:
Leonard Dyke's writing style didn't offend. But all of his work featured unhappy endings: murder. When four people die, including the author, police finally call on Nero Wolfe. Wolfe baits his trap. When it springs shut, he finds that truth is stranger (and bloodier) than fiction.
