Amazon Editorial Review

Father Brown is a fictional character created by English novelist G. K. Chesterton, who appears in 50 short stories. Father Brown’s powers of detection allow him to sit beside the immortal Sherlock Holmes but he is also, to quote Rufus King, ‘in all senses a most pleasantly fascinating human being’. You will be enchanted by the scandalously innocent man of the cloth, with the umbrella, who exhibits such uncanny insight into ingeniously tricky human problems. Contains the following 12 stories; The Absence of Mr Glass The Paradise of Thieves The Duel of Dr Hirsch The Man in the Passage The Mistake of the Machine The Head of Caesar The Purple Wig The Perishing of the Pendragons The God of the Gongs The Salad of Colonel Cray The Strange Crime of John Boulnois The Fairy Tale of Father Brown
