NERO WOLFE'S great personal friend Marko, owner of Rusterman's the fashionable New York restaurant for gourmets, is found shot dead. Wolfe, who has undertaken to solve so many murders for such fabulously high prices, in this case sets himself the task of tracking down a murderer for no monetary gain whatever. Marko was not only his friend, and a master of the gastronomic art so dear to wolfe's heart, but they had been boys together in Montenegro. Never has Nero pursued a murderer with more grim and dedicated purpose than in this his latest and most exciting adventure, which takes him, with Archie Goodwin, from his home—and the United States— across an ocean, a continent and a sea, to penetrate into one of the most dangerous and controversial places on earth. Emerging practically unscathed from the most astounding and sinister encounters, he returns at last to New York—on one of the strangest missions in all detective fiction.
