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.
"The Flying Stars": Father Brown has been invited to a Christmas masquerade, which becomes the target of another robbery.
"The Point of a Pin": A labor dispute leads to murder.
"The Three Tools of Death": A man is murdered, a man confesses to the murder and is arrested, but Father Brown doesn't believe either claim.
"The Invisible Man": The inimitable Father Brown is called to help in the hunt for a mysterious killer, known only as an "invisible man".

This is Colonial Radio Theater's 2nd volume of Fr Brown Mysteries and it is wonderful.The stories are true to Chesterton. JT Turner is a great Fr Brown. The voices, music and effects are excellent. Thanks CRT!
The Path Between the Seas to The Great Bridge ~ Kagan's Peloponnesian War to Gaddis' Cold One ~ Mornings on Horseback to a River of Doubt ~ Tom to Huck ~ Lennie to Charley ~ Cadfael to Cross ~ Rhyme to Reacher ~ Blomkvist and Salander to Wallander and Wallander ~ Moving Cheese or Eating Frogs ~ On the Road and Into Thin Air ~ The End of History to A Short History of Everything to ... well ... everything else.
Exceptionally poor rendition of Chesterton's wonderful Father Brown mysteries. Radio time constraints doom the stories to near incoherence; casting renders multiple characters confusing. There is nothing here but plot, poorly presented and stripped of everything that makes a plot worth following ~ no character development, no pacing, no background, no scene-setting.
Aside from the charming cover art, there is nothing here to warrant a purchase or a credit. And the cover art is not THAT good.
Good performance. Fun mystery series. Have purchased more of the dramatizations on sale and look forward to listening to them.
