Plot it Yourself is classic Nero Wolfe. Wolfe is hired by a committee of authors and publishers to figure out how a plagiarism racket is operating, however, soon the bodies start piling up. Wolfe even admits he has "bungled." He gives up beer and meat. He even leaves the brownstone on business.

I thought I had this one figured out, but I was wrong. I felt like Inspector Cramer, who, when Archie gives "verbatim" the whole interview with one of the "people of interest" that told Wolfe who was the murderer, is completely at sea. Well, Archie didn't figure it out either, so I don't feel so bad.

An excellent entry in the Nero Wolfe canon.
