“If you dream of having a mountain of gifts, a million congratulations on your birthday, you will have to take care of it yourself, otherwise no one will even remember about it.” This is how her friend Anya explained to Evlampia Romanova when she asked for help with organizing a gift for Murlysi’s mother-in-law. The surprise turned out to be just a sight for sore eyes: a gorgeous puzzle made of chocolate, made in the form of a luxurious castle. Admiring the beauty of the delicious present, the women hurried to put together the puzzle and enjoy tea. Evlampia and Murlyse felt sorry for the delicious food, but Anechka ate her fill and … thundered into the hospital.
Lamp and Max sought advice from Professor Moses Zilberkranz, a renowned expert in the field of toxic substances. He concluded that Anya was poisoned by the poison of the Cone snail, which was added to the chocolate palace. However, his colleague Yuri Derevyankin said that Zilberkrantz was mistaken. And, in fact, such a poison is obtained from a scoffing lizard. The situation is exacerbated when Moses Abramovich suddenly commits suicide. What happened? The ambitious professor couldn’t survive the shame? It looks like something strange is happening behind the walls of the chocolate palace, which entails a series of deaths. Wolfe’s team is determined to find out what exactly, and begins to investigate.
