Wolfe and Archie investigate the death of a model who ate a piece of poisoned candy. One of the suspects begs Wolfe to handle his estate and especially the contents of a certain red box. Wolfe is at first concerned about a possible conflict of interest, but feels unable to refuse when the man dies in his office before telling Wolfe where to find the red box. The police naturally think that he told Wolfe somewhat more before dying.
"Remember that physically and financially you are well worth some fuss. Mentally you are -- well -- in the pupa stage" (68)

"I am not unmoveable but my flesh has a constitutional reluctance to sudden, violent or sustained displacement."
A good mystery: starts with Wolfe cataclysmically leaving his house to investigate a poisoning at the offices of Boyden McNair Inc..
