When the author of a horse race tipsheet drops dead during a live radio broadcast (and what's worse, he was poisoned with the sponsor's product!), Nero Wolfe steps in to investigate the death. Between his formidable brain and his sidekick Archie's footwork, few mysteries stymie Wolfe for long, but he may have met his match in this odd case...

I've had the Nero Wolfe mysteries recommended highly to me, but overall I wasn't completely enthralled with this particular mystery. I did like Wolfe and Archie, however, so I'll probably check out other titles in the series.
