Publisher's Description

G. K. Chesterton’s masterful mystery features men who earn their livings in the most peculiar ways

The Club of Queer Trades is an incredibly exclusive society that comes with a specific conceit for entry: Its members must have a talent that is extremely unusual and use that skill to earn a living. For judge Basil Grant, the club is also a mystery that he must solve. Basil first learns of the group when his brother tells him about an army major who believes that this strange band of men is plotting to kill him. To get to the bottom of the threats against the major, Basil must track down each member of the organization one enigma at a time. Along the way, he crosses paths with a real estate agent who specializes in tree houses, a business that creates great adventures for its clients, and many other strange entities.
 
In The Club of Queer Trades, Chesterton has created a loving parody that is sure to delight any fan of Victorian mysteries.

Author Bio

G. K. Chesterton (1874–1936) was a prolific English journalist and author best known for his mystery series featuring the priest-detective Father Brown and for the metaphysical thriller The Man Who Was Thursday. Baptized into the Church of England, Chesterton underwent a crisis of faith as a young man and became fascinated with the occult. He eventually converted to Roman Catholicism and published some of Christianity’s most influential apologetics, including Heretics and Orthodoxy.

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
