      Once again Wolfe and Archie Goodwin become embroiled in the publishing business. They must solve the murder of an arrogant but mediocre author. Suspects include a snobbish literary critic at the "Gazette" newspaper, a canned former literary agent, and an irate editor.
      In a bid to solve the mystery, Wolfe sends Archie to Indiana for clues. These prove worthwhile and results in Wolfe unmasking the murderer.
