    "Most Eugenists are Euphemists. I mean merely that short words startle them, while long words soothe them. And they are utterly incapable of translating the one into the other, however obviously they mean the same thing. Say to them 'The persuasive and even coercive powers of the citizen should enable him to make sure that the burden of longevity in the previous generation does not become disproportionate and intolerable, especially to the females.'"

    Horne Fisher is extremely well connected. The plans of prime ministers, foreign ambassadors, and chancellors are matters of table conversation - usually because these people are dining with him. And when a man so well connected is also a brilliant detective, all sinister motives and plots systematically unfold. Whether it is a case of police corruption, or a war with Sweden, Horne Fisher can always solve it. But Horne Fisher is also a philosopher, and not a policeman, and the murderer is seldom punished.

    Gilbert Keith Chesterton è stato uno scrittore e giornalista inglese famoso per i suoi racconti ironici, a volte paradossali, ma sempre ricchi di morale e buoni sentimenti. Famoso per le fortunate serie di Padre Brown, in questo libro, pubblicato nel 1905, ci propone sette racconti in cui due amici, lo scrittore stesso e un ex-giudice (forse un po' pazzo) si trovano coinvolti in avventure paradossali.Cornice musicale: The Sycamore di Scott Joplin.

    Pater Brown ist ein englischer katholischer Pfarrer, der als Hobby Kriminalfälle löst. Dies gelingt ihm, indem er sich in den Täter hineinversetzt, dabei das Verbrechen selbst begeht, wie er sagt. Als Geistlicher ist er jedoch weniger daran interessiert, Verbrecher der irdischen Gerechtigkeit auszuliefern, sondern er will sie zu Gott führen; eine freiwillige Beichte des Täters genügt ihm. Es spielt für ihn keine Rolle, welches Amt diese Person bekleidet.
