New York: The Viking Press, 1955. Octavo, cloth. First edition. A Nero Wolfe mystery novel. "Nero Wolfe again and his faithful Archie are confronted with a ticklish Job in solving the problem of the disappearance of a wallet which contained the answers to a nationwide contest, now reduced to the final contestants. That the man who was carrying the wallet had been murdered was not Wolfe's concern: Just how he faces failure -- and brings off success with a flourish leaves the reader still questioning. Slick -- and not quite fair." Kirkus Review, 1 October, 1955. Hubin, pp. 777-778. Townsend, Rex Stout: An Annotated and Secondary Bibliography, A36a. A fine copy in a very good or somewhat better dust jacket with rubbing and shelf wear to the spine ends, mild wear to the corner tips, some rubbing to rear panel and rear flap fold. (23397).
