The Man Who Was Thursday
First published in 1908, The Man Who Was Thursday is often described as a metaphysical thriller, but it goes much deeper than that, as the anarchists are not only in a rebellion with the government, but often with God as well. Set in turn of the century London, Gabriel Syme is part of a secret task force at Scotland Yard, sent undercover to investigate the anarchists. He infiltrates the anarchist's world, meeting an openly anarchist poet, Lucian Gregory, at a party. This meeting sets off a sequence of nightmarish events that will keep you glued to every gripping page of The Man Who Was Thursday.
