A would-be Nero Wolfe solves a murder involving an ichthyologist who moonlights as a topless dancer. As related by his would-be Archie Goodwin, the story is very funny, well written and nicely read. Gregory Gorton has the perfect sound for the young, sarcastic chronicler. His swagger is a teenager's bluff, his wisecracks made funnier by his youth and pretended toughness.
