Writing in England at the turn of the 20th century, G.K. Chesterton was dubbed the prince of paradox for addressing serious questions with his light, whimsical style. In this classic allegory, which has captivated generations since it was first published in 1908, Chesterton tackles such profound concepts as honor, truth, and God with insightful humor and colorful enigma. The seven members of the secret Central Anarchist Council are sworn to destroy the world. For security reasons, each member has named himself after a day of the week. But Thursday is not at all whom he appears to be. Instead of a revolutionary young poet, he has been unmasked as a Scotland Yard detective. Now the other six anarchists are in a state of chaos and can't trust anyone.

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this, but I'm not sure I totally undertood it. It bordered on the absurd. I'm looking forward to discussing the book with members of The Novella Club in November. "

    " What a load of old-codgerly right-wing Catholic-Conservative piffle! The first forty of fifty pages are entertaining enough, but as soon as the chase commences (through London, to France and back through London) the book turns into a shambolic romp. Or maybe I should just say that it's not my cup of tea... "

    " A thriller with just the right touch of humour and philosophy. "

    " A well crafted satire with a great Keystone Kop moment dashed in. "
