Story Synopsis:
      Robert Goldsborough story #11 about Nero Wolfe's continued exploits. Dialog between Archie Goodwin and his colleagues again reflected Goldsborough's pomposity. Likewise, dialog between Archie and Lily Rowen was forced and pedantic.
      Contrary to expectations, Wolfe deduced that Clay staged his suicide in a manner designed to implicate five enemies in a faux murder. They included his ex-wife, a corrupt policeman, and three other shady New York City notables. Inspector Cramer greatly surprised Wolfe and Archie in hoping to work for Wolfe if he ever would be forced off the police force.
