Product Description

This is a one-of-a-kind collection of ten of Chesterton's classic Father Brown stories, with a focus on the role that Brown's Catholic religion had in assisting him in solving the murder mysteries. As Dorothy Sayers once wrote, Chesterton was "the first man of our time to introduce the great name of God into a detective story ... to enlarge the boundaries of the detective story by making it deal with death and real wickedness and real, that is to say, divine judgment."

This paperback Father Brown version includes extensive footnotes (not found in other editions) that serve to elucidate Father Brown's literary and historical allusions. It is based on the texts of Chesterton's original editions for perfect authenticity, and it is rendered in clearly legible type.

These are superb short detective yarns in the classic British form of Sherlock Holmes - perplexing concoctions of inexplicable crimes, suspects of dubious character, and unclear clues. They rank among the best of Father Brown's stories.
