* In Creator/RandallGarrett's Literature/LordDarcy homage to "Too Many Cooks", ''Too Many Magicians'', the Summation Gathering takes place in the Nero Wolfe-analogue's office, but it's conducted by Lord Darcy. However, the SummationGathering is actually [[KansasCityShuffle an elaborate misdirection]] to [[spoiler:get the real murderer to give them his sword to reenact of the murder, so he'll be unarmed when they arrest him]].

Added DiffLines:

FridgeLogic kicks in when you realize that, if the detective already knows who the killer is, he should just have the guy arrested. And it's probably best to do that by ''surprise'', rather than by giving a long speech in which the list of suspects is gradually shortened and the killer might be tempted to run away before anyone can put him in handcuffs. But the trope works well from a storytelling perspective, since it builds suspense.
