Storyline

The gourmet group, Ten for Aristology, meets for its annual celebration of haute cuisine prepared by Fritz and two chefs from Rusterman's. When one of the members, a lecherous Broaway producer, becomes ill at the table, his symptoms lead Wolfe to suspect arsenic poisoning. He narrows the suspects down to five of the twelve showgirls who have been hired for the evening as seductively-clad servers but needs the help of Rusterman chef Zoltan Mahany to identify the culprit.

Quotes

Nero Wolfe: [gleefully to the murderer] This is not the trap. The trap has already been sprung and you are caught in it. My rancor is appeased.
Inspector Cramer: [impatiently, taking the prisoner away] That's enough of that! I didn't agree to let you preach all night!
