About THE COVER
Nero Wolfe was a man who like to get things done . . . preferably by somebody else. In this case, there is a little matter of murder involved, and the very beautiful blonde, Miss Phoebe Gunther, knows something she isn't telling. Wolfe and his man-of-all-dirty-work, Archie Goodwin, are trying to find out just what the little lady has on her mind.

"But I have nothing to lie about!" Miss Gunther says.
"Pfui," says Wolfe. "Everybody has something to lie about."
