Will the criminal be caught or will the two inspectors hinder each other’s investigation? Find out in "The Blue Cross" by G. K. Chesterton.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an English writer who lived in the period 1874-1936. He was a prolific journalist and wrote over 4,000 newspaper essays. He even had his own newspaper "G.K.’s Weekly" which he edited himself. He was also a very successful critic with a wide variety of interests, including history, philosophy, theology and economics. This led him to leave an enormous literary legacy with a wide diversity of topics. He wrote novels, short stories, mysteries and poems. His writing was often marked by a sense of humor, which he employed while discussing serious topics, and because of that he was nicknamed "the prince of paradox". Some of his best known works are "The Everlasting Man", "The Napoleon of Notting Hill" and "Charles Dickens: A Critical Study".
