Description

Ian Ker's selection features the very best of G K Chesterton's classic Father Brown mysteries. With unassuming wit and an inspired understanding of human nature, the clerical detective leads the reader through these delightfully puzzling concoctions of mysterious crimes, dubious suspects and ambiguous clues. The dedicated following the tales still have is testament to their enduring quality.

About G. K. Chesterton

Born in London in 1874, Chesterton was an acclaimed critic, novelist and poet. Much of his best work took the form of articles for periodicals, including his own G.K.'s Weekly. The amiable detective-priest who brought him popularity with a wider public first appeared in THE INNOCENCE OF FATHER BROWN (1911). A friend and verbal sparring partner of George Bernard Shaw, H. G. Wells and Henry James, Chesterton's wit and intelligence shines through his work.
