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.
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.
Annotation:
"The Man Who Knew Too Much" consists of a story cycle chronicling the political life of Horne Fisher, cousin and secretary to a politician--a life that distresses and horrifies his friend, journalist Harold March.

Praise

New York Times
"In adopting the formula for the tales that the criminal shall never pay the penalty for his crime, Mr. Chesterton has given himself a somewhat heavy handicap. It is not the easiest of tasks to invent a murder mystery which shall be ingenious, plausible, perplexing and also posses some credible reason why the wrongdoer shall be permitted to escape....But Mr. Chesterton is always clever; he has the gift of being almost invariably entertaining, and very uneven in merit as these stories are, nevertheless they all have in them something that is worth while, and the best are very good indeed." - L.M. Field 12/10/1922

Armchair Detective
"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." - John C. Tibbetts Fall 1995
