From the creator of the Father Brown mysteries come eight short stories that trace the activities of Horne Fisher, "the man who knew too much," and his trusted friend, political journalist Harold March. Horne is a socialite who uses his keen mind and powerful gifts of deduction to investigate crimes committed on the sprawling country estates of the aristocracy. Much loved for their wit and sense of wonder, these stories offer a fascinating portrait of upper–crust society in pre–World War I England.
Highly regarded as a biting social commentator, Chesterton fully displays his humorous and insightful comparisons through his colorful and poetic prose. (262 pp)
