Pretty Amy Denovo wants to find the father she has never seen, but she can't afford Nero Wolfe's outlandish fees . . . or can she? Suddenly she's knocking on the oversized detective's door with a parcel full of bills in hand—and a quarter of a million hidden in her closet. It's all part of a nest egg left by her unknown father. But when Wolfe and his able assistant, Archie Goodwin, begin to trace the money to the man, they make a startling discovery: Amy's father murdered her mother—and now he may be after her. This is one of 73 mysteries written by one of America's greatest writers about one of its most interesting characters. You can't call yourself a mystery fan if you haven't read Rex Stout.
"It is always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore."—New York Times Book Review
