Inside Front Cover:

ONE COOK, FRESHLY KILLED

Wolfe pointed to the floor. “Look at that confounded mess. ”

Archie had discounted all the loose talk about killing and it hadn’t prepared him for blood. But there was blood, though not much of it, because the knife. was still sticking in Phillip Laszio’s back. Only the hilt was showing . . .

It was enough to spoil anyone’s appetite for the finest food in the world-except Wolfe’s. It was a matter of honor to find the killer, but not on an empty stomach!

“Original … full of zip” -NICHOLAS BLAKE

Back Cover:

TOO MANY COOKS

At least three master chefs had sworn to kill Laszio — and with sufficient personal reason. Had one of them turned butcher and carved him up?
There were too many motives, too few clues and not enough time to solve one of the most bizarre puzzles in Nero Wolfe’s entire career.

“FIRST CLASS.” -SATURDAY REVIEW”BY FAR THE BEST OF MR. STOUT’S BOOKS:’ -THE NEW YORKER
