Story Synopsis:
      Robert Goldsborough story #9 about Nero Wolfe's continued exploits. Dialog throughout the book was forced and reflected Goldsborough's pomposity more than any of his previous Wolfe entries. It was a chore to finish reading the story.
      Archie Goodwin and Saul Panzer witness the murder of New York state senator Orson Milbank while watching a Giants-Dofgers baseball game at the Polo Grounds on Flag Day, 14 June 1955. Nero Wolfe reluctantly accepts the high-profile case and earns the ire of Inspector Cramer and police honchos. He exposes Milbank's death as a botched attempt to murder an ambitious wife.
