It was Monday, May 22nd, 1956 when she came begging for help. She’d thrown her only son out of their Saint Paul business, but she knows now she was wrong. She needs Nero Wolfe to find her son, lost in Manhattan, and perhaps even wanted for murder. Grab your beer (or your glass of milk). There will be more than one dead body before this night is over.

Who should see this with you?
Whether your style is NCIS or Miss Marple, this is a delicious chance to discover or share one of the great detectives with your family and friends.
