Publisher's Summary

Horne Fisher is extremely well connected. The plans of prime ministers, foreign ambassadors, and chancellors are matters of table conversation - usually because these people are dining with him. And when a man so well connected is also a brilliant detective, all sinister motives and plots systematically unfold.
Whether it is a case of police corruption, or a war with Sweden, Horne Fisher can always solve it. But Horne Fisher is also a philosopher, and not a policeman, and the murderer is seldom punished. G. K. Chesterton, author of the Father Brown stories, here introduces another detective outside the realm of conventional law enforcement.
The Man Who Knew Too Much contains eight stories full of mystery and adventure, with a fair share of food for thought.

Excellent performance

Would you listen to The Man Who Knew Too Much again? Why?

Probably not. The performance was flawless, but these aren't my favorite stories.

What does B. J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The characters in distinct and I didn't have any trouble keeping track of them from story to story.

Intelligent but sometimes a bit dull

Chesterton's answer to Sherlock Holmes? Not quite, but these eight stories are well written and intriguing. I am a bit perplexed that the last four stories from the book were not included in this unabridged audiobook. They did not feature Fisher but still...
Well worth a listen, but at times the politics might send you to sleep.
