This is another Chesterton novel incorporating a series of short stories that end as one single story with the last one bringing all of the threads together. It is set in the 1920s. The man who knew too much is Horne Fisher who knows all of the key people of the ruling class in England, the secrets of their personal lives, and the odd and indirect ways that these deform the laws, policies, and administration of justice. In these stories of mystery and crime, Fisher's peculiar knowledge allows him to discover who committed each crime and why. Often the criminal must go unpunished lest worse things follow. Sometimes the victim is more guilty than the criminal.
