Despite the overdetermined make-her-a-super-harridan you point out very accurately about Mrs. Michaels, I like the food-porn scene where Dr. Michaels is invited for dinner. Actually, most of all I like the preamble, where Wolfe has invited him, and Archie tells Wolfe he's uncovered the secret of "your great big warm heart". Daw. And Wolfe's "Bosh. You would sentimentalize the multiplication table" has such a Holmes/Watson ring to it, Holmes scoffing to Watson that Watson is such a romantic as to put "a love-story or an elopement into the fifth proposition of Euclid."


One thing that does make Wolfe's sympathy with Dr. Michaels a little more understandable is-- I wonder whether he's reminded of the Thing that happened to him in Montenegro (referred to in Over My Dead Body but never quite explained) that had something to do with a woman. Perhaps, like Michaels, Wolfe attached himself to the wrong woman for-- what he realizes now, in retrospect-- were the wrong reasons?
