From one of America's best-loved writers, this second mystery featuring eccentric detective Nero Wolfe and his able assistant, Archie Goodwin, is deemed "the most interesting psychological study...and a treasure trove for a rich variety of Wolfean aphorism," according to Robert Goldsborough's introduction to Bantam's Crime Line edition. A group of Harvard alumni asks for Wolfe's help when one of their former classmates-Paul Chapin-appears likely to murder them all. Chapin, now a brilliant novelist, was left crippled by these men through a college hazing prank. Wolfe's insight and Archie's tenacity are enough to outwit the killer. 6 cassettes.--This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
