The orchard-growing, gourmandizing, demanding genius, Nero Wolf, surprisingly finds the work of his able legman, Archie Goodwin, "brilliant" in a case where Archie investigates a honey-haired corpse lying on the floor of her plush bedroom. Archie discovers that the key to this very New York case, besides the fact that she is a doxy -a kept woman or paramour, lies in the power of relationships.
