Champagne for One Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Champagne for One

When Archie is asked, as a special favor, to stand in for a friend at a dinner party for unwed mothers, murder naturally follows. Nero Wolfe would of course prefer not to be involved, but the obvious suspect wants to hire the duo to find the killer before the police find him. If you're interested in mysteries at all, you have to read at least a few Nero Wolfe novels; Stout inspired so much of what came after him.
