Storyline

Wolfe turns away a frightened prospective client who desperately wants Wolfe to defend him after receiving a threatening letter. When the man is murdered hours thereafter, Wolfe fears for his own life after he receives an identical letter. He hires a lookalike to impersonate him at $100 per diem and waits for the murderer to reveal him or herself. Written by Gabe Taverney (duke1029@aol.com)

Quotes

Archie Goodwin: [to Wolfe] Look, I admit that you're a great detective, a champion beer drinker, and a genius, but this is a hell of a way to spend a war. If Carpenter calls, and you tell him you can't do without me, I am going to put gristle in your crabmeeat and sugar in your beer.
