With Nero Wolfe on the job, you’d think murderers would take caution. But even the master detective can’t stop a killing, especially if it’s an inside job, right under the roof of his client, millionaire Otis Jarrell. What’s more, it’s Jarrell’s own missing revolver that the killer uses. Wolfe must find the truth behind the scandals in Jarrell’s ill-behaved family. One of its members sleeps the fitful sleep of the guilty, and Wolfe’s getting to be dead tired of murder.

  • “What stays in the mind are the sharply etched images (in black and white, like the best photographs from the period) of a relatively recent but completely vanished world of glamour, greed, and human weakness.”

    " This one was okay. Rex Stout's later books just aren't as good, but this one wasn't painful to read. I did really like the old maid daughter's poem about shooting the squirrel. I felt that listing where everyone was and when in the form he did was tiresome, so I didn't read it. A waste of space. "

    " I haven't read any Nero Wolfe mysteries in ages, but I found this one in a compilation of 7 Rex Stout/Nero Wolfe mysteries on my book shelf. "
