Story Synopsis:
      Robert Goldsborough story #6 about Nero Wolfe's continued exploits.
      Wolfe's self-esteem causes him to exonerate Fred Durkin, who is arrested for murder. Archie Goodwin likewise feels partially responsible for Durkin's predicament because Archie recommended Fred for a case at the Tabernacle of the Silver Spire.
      This is an unusual foray into organized religion. Reverend Barnabas Bay and his wife become suspects for the murder of an obnoxious colleague. Archie steps lightly to avoid charges of bias. Wolfe finally exposes the culprit.
