Plot Overview

At a party to celebrate his latest perfume, Alex D'Arcy gets confrontational with several people before he pops a shrimp appetizer in his mouth and then collapses and dies. After it's determined that D'Arcy died from an allergic reaction to walnut oil, Amos and Peter sniff out the suspects, including a rival perfumier, his hated son (who handed him the shrimp appetizer) and three lovely ladies, one of whom just may have given him the 'kiss of death'.
