THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY: A NIGHTMARE
G. K. CHESTERTON

Publisher: Available in Kindle E-Book:
ISBN-13: 978-1-78379-082-1

It is very difficult to classify The Man Who Was Thursday. It is possible to say that it is a gripping adventure story of murderous criminals and brilliant policemen; but it was to be expected that the author of the Father Brown stories should tell a detective story like no-one else. On this level, therefore, The Man Who Was Thursday succeeds superbly; if nothing else, it is a magnificent tour-de-force of suspense-writing.

However, the reader will soon discover that it is much more than that. Carried along on the boisterous rush of the narrative by Chesterton's wonderful high-spirited style, he will soon see that he is being carried into much deeper waters than he had planned on; and the totally unforeseeable denouement will prove for the modern reader, an inevitable and moving experience, as the investigators finally discover who Sunday is.
