The first compilation of
Father Brown short stories, The Innocence of Father Brown, is the
place to start when diving into the world of G.K. Chesterson's classic
detective stories. Father Brown is introduced in the famous story "The
Blue Cross," and lovers of mystery will become quickly entrenched in his
world. Often labeled the intuitive cousin of Arthur Conan Doyle's
deductive Sherlock Holmes, Father Brown priest turned detective who
combines philosophical and spiritual reasoning with scientific
observation to solve crimes. Chesterton, a Catholic, is literature's
king of paradox as well as a social commentator, and his funny and
insightful comparisons leave readers reeling. This volume contains 12
of the 52 Father Brown stories. The tales are short, easy reads with
strong plots all connected by the clever detective with an above-average
understanding of human nature. Begin the series here, and enter the
world of Father Brown.
