Two pounds of candied fruits, nuts and creams—laced with potassium cyanide. A lovely, young woman is dead, and the fortunes of a theatrical producer depend on solving the mystery. The police aren’t getting anywhere, so it is time to call Nero Wolfe—an eccentric detective genius who rarely leaves his comfortable brownstone in Manhattan. While maintaining an unbending schedule of tending his 10,000 orchids and dining on fine cuisine, Wolfe and his wise-cracking sidekick, Archie, solve a crime that seems unsolvable.
The world premiere adapted by Joseph Goodrich from the novel by Rex Stout; directed by Peter Moore.
