Horne Fisher is a man of means, wealth beyond the imaginings of most people. He also has access to other members of high society and intimate knowledge of the corruption that goes on behind the scenes. Using his sharp mind, he is able to solve some of the most heinous crimes imaginable, with one catch; he can’t report them, as he is a member of the criminal class himself. Join us for a journey into the underworld for a series of short whodunits that may go forever unpunished.

About the Author:

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born on May 29, 1874, in Kensington, London, England. He was educated at St. Paul’s School, then attended the Slade School of Art with the goal of becoming an illustrator. He also took classes in literature, but didn’t complete either program. In 1901, he married Frances Blogg and they were together for the rest of their lives. Taking work as a freelance art and literature critic, the Daily News gave him a weekly opinion column. He also developed a fascination with the occult, was extremely forgetful and clumsy. Standing 6 foot 4 inches and weighing 290 pounds, he was a large man, especially at that time. During his writing career, in which he was friends with H. G. Wells and George Bernard Shaw, he wrote 80 books, several hundred poems, 200 short stories, 4000 essays and several plays. Chesterton died from heart failure on June 14, 1936, at the age of 62, in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, England.
