A defense attorney examines discrepencies in the story of a businessman whose wife was murdered. The solution lies in how fast poison works.

Business associates in a long standing bitter feud refuse to talk to each other. Finally one breaks the silence with the gift of a very expensive bottle of cognac. Taking the package from the delivery man he is surprised but delighted at the generous gift. He calls his wife to share a glass with him and after her first mouthful she drops dead. Good detective story with lots of suspects.

This was a fairly good detective story about one person's account vs. another - who is telling the truth? I like how the detective senses something wrong and almost gives up a few times before finally arriving at the truth.
