Synopsis of This Won’t Kill You
Wolfe and Archie accept the invitation of a house guest to attend the World Series of Baseball final at Polo Grounds. Tickets are courtesy of Emil Chisholm, co-owner of the New York Giants, but Wolfe is not in the mood to enjoy the game. The Giants are losing to the Boston Red Socks due to the mediocre participation of several players, and Archie realizes that Nick Ferrone, the new star of the team, is not part of the lineup that day.
He and Wolfe are summoned to the premises of the Giants club by Chisholm, where they meet with manager Art Kinney, team doctor Horton Soffer and headhunter Beaky Durkin. Soffer has discovered that four of the Giants players have been drugged by drinking beverages mixed with a sedative before the game. The suspicion falls immediately on the absent Ferrone, but Archie finds him dead in another room, with the skull fractured with a baseball bat.
