His last book, a collection of short stories told by a retired secret service agent , the eponymous Mr.Pond. They all share the same formula :Mr.Pond drops a strange remark, like "they alll wanted him to leave so , of course, they asked him to stay" that seems, by the end of the tale, utterly logical. As there is no political agenda in sight, it has some of the best detective story plots ever ( or so Borges belived) and his wonderful visual imagination is in top form , this one is not to be missed

Heard some of these on BBC radio, so bought the kindle book. Very good value and stories with interesting twists that turn a seemingly illogical statement into a logical one. Best of Chesterton's short stories that I have read.
