Good Nero Wolfe yarn, but this ebook version has annoying typos. Any longtime fan of the series knows Orrie's last name: Cather. In this ebook he is called Orrie Gather, an obvious spell-checker error that a human copyeditor should have caught. There are a few other such, but this one annoyed me the most. As Wolfe would say, plfui!
