    Will Father Brown discover who killed the well-to-do ne’er-do-well? It appears as though he was stricken with the hammer of God. G.K. Chesterton, today on The Classic Tales Podcast.

    G.K. Chesterton is most notable for his creation of Father Brown. This unlooked for, and often unwelcome, detective is actually not a detective. But rather, an individual trained to think as criminals think, for he has heard so many of their confessions. He knows how their minds work, and can piece together many things that others cannot.

    Today’s story is from the first collection of Father Brown Stories, the Innocence of Father Brown.

    And now, The Hammer of God, by G.K. Chesterton.

    Anthony Trollope was a British writer of the Victorian period. He was very prolific, writing 47 novels, 42 short stories and five travel books. He is primarily known for his “Barsetshire” series of novels, including the books “The Warden” and “Barchester Towers”. It is held that his satiric novel, “The Way We Live Now” is his masterpiece.

    Today’s story, Malachi’s Cove takes place in Cornwall, and is based around a spot of beach that is an actual place. I can just see the author discover this interesting Cornish cove, and begin to erect the scaffoldings of a story around it.

Great performance

I have listened to B. J. Harrison I think for ten years and his performances have always been top notch. I have an audible subscription and have for several years and still listen to his stories more than audible.
Thank you B.J.
