G. K. CHESTERTON Master of the mystery series and creator of the original FATHER BROWN. SOMEONE has died under mysterious circumstances. The usual crowd gathers: the detectives, a coroner, a collection of witnesses with contradictory versions of events—and a somewhat stout little man in clerical garb whom no one seems to have noticed. Whatever theories the local authorities have devised, whatever “facts” have been determined, G.K. Chesterton’s brilliant priest-detective will soon render them false, and we the readers will be off on the trail of murderer and thief in early twentieth century England. We, the readers, are continually impressed by the wit and wisdom of the little priest. We also are provided a revealing, sometimes surprising (or even shocking) glimpse of the manners and morals of the time. That Father Brown’s remarkable abilities might not be allowed to be exploited by modern-day investigators makes his adventures all the more enjoyable. Mysteries confronted by Father Brown in this collection of stories are intricately woven. Their solutions require the mind and persistence of one with special genius. The author provides the necessary qualities in the form of this unassuming little priest from Essex.
