About the book:

The Last Coincidence Playboy Sparky Linville has a nasty notion of fun and games. But when he picks popular Noreen James as his unwilling playmate, the result is murder-and a case that will rock Manhattan's trendy Upper East Side and divide the family of Lily Rowan, Noreen's aunt. As furore rages in the local press and the police fix their attention on her relatives, Lily turns to her old friend Archie Goodwin for help, hoping he can convey the seriousness of the family's plight to his eminent employer, Nero Wolfe. Wolfe doesn't enjoy being distracted from his greenhouse and his groaning board. Yet Archie's eloquence-and the prospect of an enormous fee-seduce him into accepting the case. It is, of course, understood that since the master detective has no intention of venturing forth from his snug brownstone, Archie will handle the legwork. But the more shoe leather Archie burns, the more burning questions arise. There are too many suspects-and every one of them has a strong motive and no alibi. And on top of that, two people have confessed to the crime! Nero Wolfe is left to ponder this bizarre puzzle-and the deadliest coincidence-in the most baffling case of his career.
