Story Synopsis:
      Robert Goldsborough story #5 about Nero Wolfe's continued exploits.
      Wolfe dives into the world of cutthroat commercial advertisement. He accepts a job to learn who has been stealing ideas from MLR, an upcoming agency. In the process, he must expose a murderer and endure an irrasible Cherokee billionaire, Acker Foreman.
      Archie Goodwin, as usual, provides dash and tenacity in this foray into family jealousy and backstabbing competition. Police are left panting in the dust.
