Publisher's Description

G. K. Chesterton’s beloved collection proves that some mysteries aren’t meant to be solved

Horne Fisher is a skilled detective who always finds his man, but every solution comes with a catch: Exposing the crime will make things worse. Fisher’s greatest strength isn’t his Holmesian ability to deduce, but his knowledge of the dirty secrets of the ruling class, how the rich and powerful manipulate the government and bend the law to their wills.
 
In this collection, Fisher uses his special skill to get to the bottom of mysteries as diverse as the disappearance of a valuable coin, the framing of an Irish prince, and the death of his own uncle from a falling statue. The Man Who Knew Too Much is a shining example of author G. K. Chesterton’s prodigious wit and prescient observation.
 
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

Editorial Reviews

"It is . . . [Chesterton’s] proximity to Poe and Kafka and indeed Borges that makes him not just still readable but still curiously modern." —The Guardian
