THE SCENE: Take a stroll through midtown Manhattan to “Sam’s on 10th”, New York City, 1934, and enter the world of Private Detective Archie Goodwin. Let your imagination run wild as you see shiny new Auburn convertibles and Hudson Straight 8 motorcars gliding down the busy afternoon streets. Enter Sam’s on 10th and witness a suit-clad Archie Goodwin working on his 3rd glass of milk. He orders 2 bananas, figs with sweet cream and a delicious slice of spiced raisin bread, seeming as if he hasn’t a care in the world. Goodwin flickers his eyes at Saul Panzer, who you notice sitting at the lunch counter at the front of Sam’s. Saul subtly tips his newspaper to Orrie Cather, sitting at the shoe-shine across the street. Suddenly, you realize this is no ordinary afternoon meal. You’re watching a stake out by order of Nero Wolfe – and there’s no way Archie Goodwin is going to let this dangerous mark slip through his fingers!
