Radio talk show host Madeline Fraser's fear of dead air becomes literal when a guest keels over after drinking a glass of her sponsor's beverage. Enter Nero Wolfe and his assistant, Archie. Nero lends his considerable sleuthing skills to the case but soon discovers that everyone connected to the case is lying about it. What's more, the portly private eye soon learns that the secret worth lying about only hides another worth killing for. Michael Prichard's dramatic reading brings this vintage 1948 whodunit to life.
