Written in 1908 this early spy thriller, begins with Gabriel Syme being recruited by Scotland Yard to infiltrate the vaguely threatening Central Anarchists Council. Syme deals with the disguises, betrayals, and suspicions that have become the hallmarks of espionage fiction, all while the world around him grows more and more surreal. Touching on themes that are still relevant, Chesterton’s book is intelligently entertaining.
