The League of Frightened Men

League Of Frightened Men

Archie Goodwin here…

My job is to see that Nero Wolfe has every opportunity to exercise his brain. That means dealing with crackpots and clients so fatso has time to drink beer, tend his orchids – and think. 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!

Fer de Lance Recipe Index


Fer-de-Lance by Rex Stout

As any herpetologist will tell you, the fer-de-lance is among the most dreaded snakes known to man. When someone makes a present of one to Nero Wolfe, Archie Goodwin knows he’s getting dreadfully close to solving the devilishly clever murders of an immigrant and a college president. As for Wolfe, he‘s playing snake charmer in a case with more twists than an anaconda whistling a seductive tune he hopes will catch a killer who’s still got poison in his heart.
