The Final Deduction
Rear Cover Intro:
The ransom note said — “We have your Jimmy safe and sound. You can have him back all in one piece for $500,000 if you play it right…”
The lady was upset. She didn’t care about the money, but she loved her husband and she wanted him back. So she took the ransom note to Nero Wolfe.
Imperturbable as ever, Wolfe kept police and clients waiting while he made sure he earned his fee – Enough to keep him in orchids forever!
