Sworn to do his duty, When Syme discovers another undercover policeman on the Council, however, he starts to question his role in their operations.

About G. K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesteron was born in 1874. Probably his most famous stories are those of 'Father Brown', but he wrote much about every conceivable subject under or beyond the sun. The best accounts of his life are to be found in his own Autobiography, published soon after his death in 1936, and in Miss Maisie Ward's Life of him.
