The League of Frightened Men book

Hibbard had received threatening poems from an individual he refused to name, but after reading a phrase in Chapin's book that also appeared in the poems, Wolfe has deduced that the man Hibbard feared is Chapin.

Viva vocechapter 2. Chapin has even written a book boasting that he has murdered and will do so again! The deaths were an unfortunate accident and a suicide respectively, but Chapin, psychologically incapable of murder but resentful of his friends for both their responsibility for his injury and their pity towards him, sent the poems to scare his friends and gain his vengeance on them that way.

Hibbard, driven to desperation by his fear and paranoia of Chapin, had faked his death and begun following Chapin to work up the courage to murder him.

After one of them dies at a reunion gathering, all of the surviving members receive a copy of a poem claiming responsibility for the man's death and promising that the rest of the self-styled "League of Atonement" will suffer the same fate.

User Reviews

The average goose one finds in a market is frozen. It would be interesting if Wolfe were an agoraphobe, trapped in his house due to psychological terror rather than laziness. Wolfe has Archie arrange for Chapin to be tailed as closely as possible, a search for Hibbard to be conducted, and the two deaths to be investigated.

The railway runs along it. Later, he notes with amusement that there's a bit of a minor kerfuffle when the actual medical examiner turns up.

Soon after, Paul Chapin is arrested for the sudden murder of Dr. Creator Breakdown : In-universe; Paul Chapin is a novelist who has written some exceedingly violent books in which versions of his friends, whom he blames for an injury that crippled him years ago when they were at Harvard, meet with very unpleasant ends.

Even more off-putting is the fact that Wolfe refuses to set foot outside, insisting that all the clues be brought to him by his 'leg man' Archie Goodwin.

A correspondent who has read Rex Stout's novel informs me that they did give Chapin some compensation in the book; the subject isn't even mentioned in this film.

The casting for 'Meet Nero Wolfe' was impressive. Edward McNamara, the living embodiment of the Irish cop, plays here for once a cop who isn't Irish. Also on hand here is character actress Rafaela Ottiano, whom I usually find quite sexy even while I'm repulsed by most of the characters she plays on screen.

Rub the goose with salt and pepper and prick the skin. Yet with their hazing days at Harvard far behind them, they had every reason to believe that Paul himself had forgiven them--until a class reunion ends in a fatal fall, and the poems, swearing deadly retribution, begin to arrive. Frederick G.

Frederick G. A hazing incident at Harvard left Chapin a cripple. With Lon Chaney-like effort, he crutches his way round the room, confronting the men who maimed him, snarling with rage while they quiver and shake. Created during the Nazi occupation of Brussels, it depicts a stormy, mountainous landscape in which a cluster of plants has metamorphosed into a group of vigilant owls.

Suddenly the door opens and Eduardo Ciannelli totters into the room, supporting his twisted body on two walking sticks. Actually subverted. Punch-Clock Hero : Wolfe, as always, but a notable example comes up at the end, when — despite figuring out who actually killed Dr. To see such an unusual and unexpected side of a character is always fascinating, but in this case it is truly heartwarming read: I wanted to give Archie a giant hug.

Soon after, Paul Chapin is arrested for the sudden murder of Dr. Implements the template. The Loins Sleep Tonight : Discussed; in his analysis of Chapin based on reading his books, Wolfe speculates in a veiled fashion that he's impotent, likely as a result of his accident.

His cold manner, coarse features and accent keep him resolutely unlikeable on screen, but his talent as an actor is manifest.The second Nero Wolfe mystery novel by Rex Stout, published in The novel introduces Inspector Cramer, who would go on to become a key supporting character in the series.
