A Bantam Book

Last date was 2nd printing May 1968 – this is a 6th Printing in the same run. Only difference I can find is the book ID number is different and the cover price is $0.60 verses $0.50 for the 2nd printing.

Rear Cover Intro:

An Audience-Participation Murder

Madeline Fraser was an extremely beautiful, world-renowned entertainer. Her show was so popular that when a guest on her program got publicly poisoned with the sponsor’s own product, there were at least twenty million eyewitnesses. All Nero Wolfe had to do was to find out which witness was doubling as an assassin The case was as "Show Biz" as a chorus call, with enough gorgeous dolls on the scene to keep even Archie Goodwin occupied.
