From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest takes on bandits, traitors and killers. Why is he so successful? The reason is that after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it. The Blue Cross ? Father Brown is traveling to London to attend a meeting of priests, and he is carrying with him a priceless silver cross, studded with blue sapphires. Flambeau, the thief, plans to steal it. The Secret Garden ? Father Brown is called to investigate the beheading of a man, committed in a closed garden. How did the murderer escape? The Queer Feet ? Father Brown investigates a death at the Vernon Hotel. The Arrow of Heaven ? Father Brown comes to the aid of a man receiving threatening letters, but he is unable to prevent him from being killed with an arrow.

This is the first in a series of four (so far) and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it.
J.T. Turner makes an admirable Father Brown and the stories adapt so well to the audio medium that Chesterton might almost have been writing for radio.
This is not the BBC series from years ago, this is all-new drama from Colonial Radio Theatre and I commend them to you.
