The League of Frightened Men

League Of Frightened Men

Archie Goodwin here…

But when thirty frightened men called on Wolfe to solve their special problem, somebody had to do something more than just sit there. Because these guys were dying off too fast…”

The League of Frightened Men

Thirty men live in terror while a hate-twisted genius celebrates his murders in verse – and promises more to come. Nero Wolfe tackles his strongest case….for Wolfe knew who the killer was, and knew that his crimes could never be proved!
