TV movie; succeeded by A Nero Wolfe Mystery.
Seventh-of-a-ton sleuth Nero Wolfe (Maury Chaykin) is spurred into action -- or rather, sending his assistant and legman Archie Goodwin (Timothy Hutton) into action -- after a 12-year-old boy is killed the day after calling on Wolfe, and a woman who responds to his request for information is also slain.
- Originally intended to be the first in a set of two-hour TV movies; however, its success led A&E to transition the Nero Wolfe stories into a television series.
