Publisher's Summary

From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest takes on bandits, traitors, and killers. Why is he so successful? The reason is that, after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it.

In "The Oracle of the Dog", Father Brown is the guest of a retired colonel when his host is found dead, stabbed with a narrow blade, but no murder weapon.

In "Miracle of Moon Crescent", a man is found hanged from a courtyard tree, despite no one ever seeing him leave his high-rise office.

In "The Green Man", Father Brown is all at sea when a naval admiral is discovered drowned, but a chance remark throws the whole case into perspective.

In "The Quick One", the sleuthing priest is faced with one of his most baffling mysteries when a loud-mouthed reverend is stabbed with an oriental dagger in the bar of a quiet hotel.

    "A Great Performance"

    As always, The Colonial Radio Players put on another stellar performance. I love the G.K. Chesterton stories but even more so when they are dramatized. You can't beat the price and you definitely get alot for your money with all the CRP productions! Well done, Jerry Robbins!

    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    "Why only two stars?"

    As nostalgia radio, this may be better appreciated by someone elce. The Colonial Radio players are OK. The plots are a bit silly. As a send up to detective stories, this may be better done as a stage performance. Still and all a lot of people loved these stories in their day.
