Father Brown, G. K. Chesterton's lovable little Norfolk priest, has an uncanny knack of unraveling mysteries that leave lesser mortals floundering. His sympathetic understanding of human nature never deserts him, even when he himself is touched by a breath of scandal, thanks to the hasty conclusions of a crusading newspaperman. In this collection, Father Brown uses his distinctive style of deduction to solve the seemingly insoluble.

Watch out! This version, like many, is missing several stories from the original: "The God of the Gongs", "The Salad of Colonel Cray", "The Strange Crime of John Boulnois" and "The Fairy Tale of Father Brown." Note that it is labelled "unabridged". A lie!
