Publisher Comments:

A group of anarchists dedicated to overthrowing the world order are under surveillance by Scotland Yard and are about to be infiltrated, in this fast-moving, funny, surreal detective story with a highly anarchic take on anarchy
 
Gabriel Syme is dispatched by Scotland Yard on a secret mission to infiltrate the Central Anarchist Council—an organization plotting to bring down the existing social order. The seven members of the group are named after days of the week, with the mysterious Sunday, who calls himself "the Sabbath and the peace of God," as their leader and mastermind. Having successfully infiltrated their ranks, Syme himself becomes known as "Thursday." But he soon finds himself in a surreal waking nightmare, in which the lines between freedom and order, fact and fiction, become irrevocably blurred. Written in 1908, and drawing heavily on contemporary fears of anarchist conspiracies and bomb plots, this tale of panic and paranoia remains uncannily relevant. It is a fascinating mystery, a spellbinding allegory, and an entirely chilling classic of crime fiction.

Synopsis:

The Supreme Anarchists Council is dedicated to overthrowing the world order. To keep their identities a secret, each of the members has been named after a day of the week. Gabriel Syme, an eccentric poet, is recruited by Scotland Yard to infiltrate the group. He tracks down the six other men and manages to win a place on the council. But after a bizarre twist of events, Syme quickly realizes that appearances are never what they seem in the dangerous world of the political underground.
