A collection of mystery stories.

Six distinguished gentleman (Ph.D.'s all) and one invited guest dine monthly at New York's elegant Milano restaurant. the Black Widowers, whose number includes the peerless waiter, Henry have an uncanny ability to elicit from each guest a story that is somehow problematic, unsolved, a mystery — even if the guest is unaware of the problem.
