The Man Who Was Thursday: A Nightmare is a mystery book written by G. K. Chesterton in 1908.

Gabriel Syme is a poet and undercover detective who is hired to infiltrate a group of anarchists who are preparing a plot against the government. As he learns more about this group, he comes to realize that anarchists are not as they are portrayed from the outside.

Through several plot twists, the novel deals with a series of philosophical questions and reflections on topics such as anarchism or authority.

This adventure, full of mystery and touches of humor, has an exciting development and culminates in a great ending that closes all the open questions in the story. If you enjoy philosophical thrillers or novels that not only entertain, but also make you think, this book is for you.

"It is very difficult to classify THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY. It is possible to say that it is a gripping adventure story of murderous criminals and brilliant policemen; but it was to be expected that the author of the Father Brown stories should tell a detective story like no-one else. On this level, therefore, THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY succeeds superbly; if nothing else, it is a magnificent tour-de-force of suspense-writing.".
