In retrospect, I think Wolfe never planned on taking Archie, since he doesn't trust Archie's acting. He kept saying he would, and deliberately made sure word got back to Zeck that he would, in part so Archie wouldn't be watching him too closely and in part so that Zech wouldn't be expecting Wolfe to show up after him with Archie working in NYC.

:grins: Other mileage may vary, of course!

On a more general line, one, thank you for writing this up! And two, I really enjoy the '40s and '50s Wolfe books. I particularly like the slow weave in of Zeck through these two, where it makes sense for Wolfe to run into him every so often. My only problem with the book is that now *I* want a steak after that description!

ETA: I hope you get completely well soon!
