Man Who Knew Too Much
"Modern intelligence won't accept anything on authority. But it will accept anything without authority. That's exactly what has happened here."
—Horne Fisher
The Man Who Knew Too Much, by G. K. Chesterton

From the creator of the Father Brown mysteries come nine short stories, eight 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. The other story, "The Trees of Pride," revolves around the fictional character Squire Vane.

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.
