Description

“Dazzlingly executed and richly atmospheric.” Armchair Detective

First published in 1922 and filled with evocative portraits of pre–World War I society, these eight stories from the creator of the Father Brown mysteries recount the adventures of Horne Fisher, a socialite who uses his immense knowledge and powerful deductive gifts to investigate crimes committed on the sprawling country estates of the aristocracy—crimes that must, alas, go largely unpunished due to the greater harm that justice would unleash.
