Equally well-known for his sophisticated philosophy tracts and his top-notch detective fiction, G.K. Chesterton was himself something of a literary jack-of-all-trades. This beloved collection of detective stories and mysteries is based on a club that is only open to those who rely on unusual or extraordinary lines of work as their main source of income. A fast-paced, purely enjoyable collection that is sure to tickle the fancy of classic detective fiction fans.
