Synopsis

Venture into a wonderful world of anarchic mystery in the ninth edition in the Hatchards Library. Limited and numbered, this edition comes with cloth binding, a stylish dust jacket and beautiful endpapers.

Synopsis

Imagine a society of anarchists so secret that their members are only known as days of the week. Then imagine a police force where officers are interviewed in a pitch-dark room. Into this extraordinary world comes Gilbert Syme, poet of order and policeman, who is promised an evening of entertainment. The farce which follows has policemen following criminals, criminals following policemen and a chase through London involving hansom cabs and an elephant. The day before he died Chesterton wrote that this book was misunderstood because readers ignored its subtitle: A Nightmare. Which is exactly what it is, albeit a very entertaining and hilarious one.
