Club of Queer Trades
G. K. Chesterton
What is the point of rescuing a lady from her kidnappers if she refuses to be rescued? The answer leads to the mystery of The Club of Queer Trades.
"Cherub" Swinburne and his friends, brothers Basil and Rupert Grant, use their best sleuthing efforts to understand The Club of Queer Trades -- a club that demands its members earn their living in odd and unusual ways.
This is Edwardian detective work at its finest, with Chesterton's wit and style making each of the six tales within the book a delight to read.

About the Author
British author Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was an English writer, lay theologian, poet, philosopher, and biographer. Chesterton is well known for his priest-detective Father Brown. Time magazine had this to say about the British author: "Whenever possible Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, allegories-first carefully turning them inside out."
