Short stories by GK Chesterton, better-known for his 'Father Brown' mysteries. In these tales, the sleuth is Horne Fisher, a young man who solves problems because he 'knows too much'. He understands psychology and spots details that are missed by others - and there are some interesting stories, with rather a philosophical twist here and there. Unfortunately, they became increasingly political towards the end, with some rather nasty violent images, and a thoroughly miserable ending. I'm glad I read the free Kindle edition; worth reading once, but I doubt if I'll do so again.
