Prolific English writer and theologian G. K. Chesteron’s unique spin on detective fiction, originally published in a literary magazine in 1910, marks the introduction of the unassuming, diminutive priest-detective Father Brown, who, through sheer wit and ingenuity, helps the Parisian detective Aristide Valentin apprehend the notorious Flambeau, one of Europe’s most sought-after criminals, who also happens to be a master of disguise, in this compelling audiobook adeptly performed by David Timson, whose agile, spirited performance captures the dynamism of Chesterton’s distinctive prose.
This is a story from the The Innocence of Father Brown collection.
Father Brown is an eccentric priest with his own particular ways of dealing with crime. David Timson, having completed the whole of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes canon, a remarkable achievement, turns his hand to the genial but certainly not innocent priest! This collection contains a group of stories from the Innocence of Father Brown, told unabridged.
