The Man Who Knew Too Much

The Man Who Knew Too Much - G.K. Chesterton Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for mysteries that relied too much on understanding politics that would have been obvious to someone in Chesterton's era but were not explicated in the text ... or for mysteries that rely on clues never presented.Whatever the reason, I found myself disappointed in this book, which was actually a collection of novellas featuring protagonist and "gentleman detective" Horne Fisher, a minor English diplomat who happens to know a lot about things he deems unimportant.The tales were well-written and clever, but just not my cup of tea.
