Publisher's Summary

Chesterton leads us on a merry ride of mystery, intrigue and above all, fantasy in this tale of anarchism filled with suspense and sitting-on-the-edge-of-ones-chair fright. Sometimes it is referred to as a metaphysical-thriller and Chesterton himself refers to it as "a nightmare". We are kept wondering and in suspense until the very end of this masterpiece by the creator of Father Brown.

G.K. Chesterton

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) was a British novelist, journalist and poet. Most famed for his fantasy and mystery novels, Chesterson was a contemporary of Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw.
