Rear Cover Intro:

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 strangest case… for Wolfe knew who the killer was, and knew that his crimes could never be proved!

Inside Cover Text:

There was no mystery

Yet thirty people – bankers, doctors, taxi drivers, lawyers, professors, salesmen – had gathered in Nero Wolfe’s house to offer him a fantastic fee.

No proof of murder

Yet two men had died, another disappeared, and thirty more lived in terror of a man they had thought was their friend.

No doubt of guilt

Yet the man who bragged of killing and wrote verses promising death to all his enemies walked free – and Nero Wolfe could not stop him!
