Follow one of the world's greatest detectives on a trail of money, mayhem, and murder in three cases of capital crime. The trail of bodies begins with the death of a self-made millionaire, a fortune in uranium, and the perfect weapon - which no longer exists. Then, it's on to a rural lodge to teach two arrogant billionaires, a foreign ambassador, and a famous diplomat that murder is bad for business. Finally, it's a case of politics making the strangest of bedfellows. A fake millionaire becomes a real corpse in the state capital, and the evidence has Nero and his right-hand man, Archie Goodwin, in the hot seat.
