Aloysius Gordon has come to the Black Widowers banquet with a problem he hopes Henry can solve. A madman has threatened one of the contestants in the Miss Earth contest, and he needs to know which.
This is a very weak Black Widowers story, with the solution being that inasmuch as "Rahab" is threatened—Rahab being a Biblical name for a horrible sea-monster—the threat is directed against Miss Wales. A very slight pun and a weak solution to a generally uninteresting mystery.
