This is a selection of stories (about 16 pages each) taken from the Father Brown books: a good sampler reader if you have not read Chesterton before. Father Brown has been described as a priest-sleuth and the stories are considered as detective along the vein of Sherlock Holmes. I would not call them mysteries in the sense of Agatha, or Doyle, but rather posers: more in the manner of J. K. Bangs R. Holmes. If you have read Chestertons The Man Who Knew Too Much, or The Man Who Was Thursday, you will enjoy theseand vice versa.
