Story Synopsis:
      The law invades Nero Wolfe's home in a search for Clara Fox, whom Wolfe and Archie Goodwin keep hidden in the old brownstone until the case is solved. Fox and her friends hire Wolfe to wheedle money out of a British lord; he must clear her of a larceny charge and solve two murders on the way to reaching his goal. Perry shoots Wolfe in his left arm before both Archie and Clivers shoot and kill the dual murderer. Yet, Wolfe diligently finds time to continue his latest stab at exercise--throwing darts 15 minutes per day.
