When a millionaire businessman hires Nero Wolfe to probe the background of his daughter's boyfriend, it seems like just another case of an overprotective father. But when a powerful gangland boss "counsels" the detective to drop the matter, Wolfe receives a warning: a burst of machine-gun fire through the windows of his orchid room. Then the lawyer boyfriend turns up dead, leaving Archie the number one suspect. Throw in drugged drinks, two man-killing debutantes, and officials of a highly un-American party and Wolfe finds himself involved in a case where he must quickly solve one murder to prevent another: his own.   Introduction by William G. Tapply   "It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore."--The New York Times Book Review   A grand master of the form, Rex Stout is one of America's greatest mystery writers, and his literary creation Nero Wolfe is one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time. Together, Stout and Wolfe have entertained--and puzzled--millions of mystery fans around the world. Now, with his perambulatory man-about-town, Archie Goodwin, the arrogant, gourmandizing, sedentary sleuth is back in the original seventy-three cases of crime and detection written by the inimitable master himself, Rex Stout.… (mere)

Wolfe is hired to discover if a man is a member of the Communist Party to break up a romance with a rich man's daughter. Archie is sent undercover to the family's estate to get in good with the young woman. It's discovered that the man is involved with a syndicate then he turns up dead. The father wants Wolfe to find the murderer than when it looks like he has, the father no longer wants Wolfe to investigate but Wolfe won't be called off especially when it looks like Archie may be the murderer.

I love Nero Wolfe stories. He is pompous but I like Archie. Wolfe will not allow his pride in his abilities to be compromised so he continues his investigation. Even when Wolfe is threatened and his orchids injured, he keeps on investigating. I did not figure it out. I was surprised by how Wolfe found the murderer and who it was.

I look forward to more Nero Wolfe stories. ( )

Fantastic.... Archie gets the girl, but not the one he's supposed to. Nero Wolfe leaves the house! And his nemesis has the plant rooms shot to pieces to get Wolfe to drop his investigation, but nothing doing. Probably my favorite of all the Zeck books (at least the ones I've read). ( )

Wolfe and Goodwin investigate a man who is supposed to be a communist. Then the man turns up dead, and it is Wolfe's car that did it. In addition Mr. X has shot up the greenhouse, forcing Wolfe to leave the house. ( )
