Story Synopsis:
      Nero Wolfe cracks a dual murder mystery, one of which was committed many years earlier. He also manages to expose the murderer in such a way that a victim's Canadian partner contributes substantially to an otherwise small fee. Once again Archie Goodwin is left flagging behind Wolfe, wondering why ice cream is crucial to resolving the case.
