A prolific and popular writer, G. K. Chesterton (1874-1936) is best known as the creator of detective-priest Father Brown. These eight tales trace the activities of Horne Fisher, a member of a wealthy and socially prominent family who is well acquainted with the ways of the rich and powerful (he knows too much about them). Fisher's keen mind and powerful deductive gifts make him a natural sleuth, but his inquiries tend to develop moral complications-which he sorts out with the able assistance of his friend and confidant, the writer Harold March. Notable for their wit and sense of wonder, these adventures offer an evocative portrait of upper-crust society in pre-World War I Britain. Unabridged republication of the classic 1922 edition.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He began his education at St Paul's School, and later went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in "The Innocence of Father Brown." Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.
