On the 40th anniversary of the JFK assassination comes the fascinating story of Richard Case Nagell, the man hired to kill Lee Harvey Oswald, revised and expanded with a decade's worth of new declassified information.
"The eight stories of 'The Man Who Knew Too Much' (1922) are the darkest in tone and theme of all Chesterton's mystery short stories (save, perhaps, a few of Father Brown's cases)....The book's cynical tone will come as a surprise to those who think Chesterton is only a cheerleader for Merrie Olde England. Two of them, moreover--'The Face in the Target' and 'The Hole in the Wall'--must rank among Chesterton's finest achievements."
From the Publisher
A fascinating twist on the assassination of JFK explores the life and times of Richard Nagell, a man who insisted that he had been hired to kill Oswald and then spent years in prison trying to prove that he was sane. Reprint.
