Summary
No matter how fabulously he<U+2019>s being courted, infamously dour “art hog” Arthur Wordell isn<U+2019>t keen on favoring the new Guggenheim Museum with his extensive collection. Even at the urging of his beloved daughter, Nadia. Then, the night after the museum<U+2019>s fête, Arthur takes a twenty-story plunge from the window of his Times Square office. Nadia thinks it<U+2019>s no mere coincidence. Eccentric, yes. Suicidal, no. Private investigator Nero Wolfe and his assistant, Archie Goodwin, agree. Especially after eyeballing Arthur<U+2019>s enemies and sycophants, including his ex-wife, a covetous curator, a troika of obsequious advisors, and an outré Greenwich Village artist anxious to see her work out of storage and on the walls of the “Guggie.” For Wolfe, there<U+2019>s a problem: Arthur didn<U+2019>t leave a will. Without a beneficiary not a soul in Arthur<U+2019>s circle is set to benefit from his death. Nor do they show any customary indication of guilt. If anybody can solve a seemingly unsolvable masterpiece of murder, it<U+2019>s Wolfe. Unfortunately, this time, New York<U+2019>s artful investigator is, admittedly, stumped
