This mystery from one of America's best-loved writers features one of the greatest fictional detectives of all time - Nero Wolfe. An orchid-growing, gourmandizing, demanding genius, Wolfe solves this case with the able assistance of his legman, Archie Goodwin, who narrates with his usual wry humor. The Pour Amour perfume contest reeks of death when Louis Dahlmann is robbed of the riddles and then shot dead. The LBA ad firm wants the clever campaign to continue and hires Wolfe to locate and pilfered paper. While Archie trails the scent of fragrant ladies, Wolfe tracks a murderer and detects something foul close to home.
