Wolfe's addiction is to "the good life"...fine food, good beer, excellent literature, his orchids, freedom from the want that characterized his childhood and young adulthood in Montenegro. It's practically the only reason he works (aside from hurt pride, as when the prospective client is killed not only in his own house, not only in his own office, but with HIS OWN NECKTIE! or close friendship (Too Many Cooks)).
