Nero Wolfe is hired by a committee of authors and publishers who have been accused of plagiarism. Wolfe takes the case not now murders will follow. He also knows the one accusing the others of plagiarism is also the murderer but how to prove it and find the evidence.
Not one of the best books in the Nero Wolfe series but it still held my interest. There is a large cast of characters as well as the regulars. I figured one of the people involved but did not see the ending that happened until they were all in Wolfe's office.
