Thirteen Detectives by G. K. Chesterton
Thirteen Detectives is a collection of 12 short stories featuring (what originally confused me but I think I understand it now) 14 detectives. It begins with The White Pillars Murder, travels through Mr. Pond's paradoxes (The two men agreed on everything, naturally, one killed the other) and ends with a never-before published Father Brown mystery, The Donnington Affair. This is the pinnacle of Chesterton intrigue.
