Book Description :

'It would not be fair to record the adventures of Father Brown, without admitting that he was once involved in a grave scandal...It happened in a picturesque Mexican road-house of rather loose repute...' After many years in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. In this fifth and final series of mysteries, the clerical mastermind confronts slander, passion, radical politics, superstition, high crimes and misdemeanours, outwitting some quite extraordinary and villainous adversaries on the way. G. K. Chesterton was born in 1874. He attended the Slade School of Art, where he appears to have suffered a nervous breakdown, before turning his hand to journalism. A prolific writer throughout his life, his best- known books include The Napoleon of Notting Hill (1904), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1922), The Man Who Was Thursday (1908) and the Father Brown stories. Chesterton converted to Roman Catholicism in 1922 and died in 1938. 'Chesterton knew how to make the most of a detective story' Jorge Luis Borges

Book Description :

British writer GILBERT KEITH CHESTERTON (1874-1936) expounded prolifically about his wide-ranging philosophies-he is impossible to categorize as "liberal" or "conservative," for instance-across a wide variety of avenues: he was a literary critic, historian, playwright, novelist, columnist, and poet. His witty, humorous style earned him the title of the "prince of paradox," and his works-80 books and nearly 4,000 essays-remain among the most beloved in the English languageChesterton is best remembered, perhaps, as a spinner of mystery tales, and for his recurring character of Father Brown. This 1914 collection of stories includes some of the crime-solving priest's greatest cases: . "The Absence of Mr. Glass." "The Paradise of Thieves." "The Duel of Dr. Hirsch." "The Man in the Passage." "The Mistake of the Machine." "The Head of Caesar." "The Purple Wig." "The Perishing of the Pendragons." "The God of the Gongs." "The Salad of Colonel Gray." "The Strange Crime of John Boulnois." "The Fairy Tale of Father Brown"

Book Description :

This unique collection of Father Brown mysteries links tales by G.K. Chesterton with the Ten Commandments. The connection is often surprising, however, for the criminal is not necessarily the worst sinner in the story, nor is his crime necessarily the worst offense. When Chesterton created the character of Father Brown, he brought a new dimension to mystery stories--the distinction between crime and sin. As the priest-detective applies his powers of observation to solve a case, he picks up clues about other offenses, such as those against the Sabbath or one's parents. Father Brown's main concern is not the laws of the State but the Commandments of God. As Dorothy Sayers once wrote, G.K. 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 edition includes footnotes not available in other versions, which help to clarify the literary and historical allusions made by Father Brown. It is based on the texts of Chesterton's original editions, for assurance of authenticity, and is set in easily readable type. "John Peterson is the world's greatest expert on Chesterton's famous priest-detective. His presentation of these particular Father Brown stories only adds to their craftiness and profundity." — Dale Ahlquist, President, American Chesterton Society

Book Description :

In spite of the quiet setting, Bardo County in the American Midwest enjoys a lot of murders, and there is only person who is able to solve them: an old priest in his 90’s, serving as the Assistant Pastor as St. Dominic’s parish. His name is Father Brown. John Peterson has taken his expertise on the famous priest-sleuth and spun it into 44 irresistible short stories that will baffle you till each startling solution. It’s great to see Father Brown still in action. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ “A jewel, a treasure, a thing to be enjoyed again and again.” —G.J. MEYER, award-winning author of "A World Undone: The Story of the Great War" “Father Brown made his fame by being quite ordinary; he is as plain as a Norfolk dumpling. In these new stories, despite his age and his need for a cane, his mind continues to be as sharp as a tack, his powers of reasoning clear, his moral fiber, well, fibrous.” —NANCY CARPENTIER-BROWN, author of "The Father Brown Reader" and other books about Chesterton’s famous detective-priest. “Criminals from the merely inept to the fiendishly clever, beware: Father Brown is very much alive and on your tail in Bardo County.” —THERESE WARMUS, Literary Editor, Gilbert Magazine From “THE EXACT TIME”: "Father Brown did not own a watch and he never used an alarm clock. He simply woke up about five in the morning each day as a matter of long habit. The day of the murder was no exception. After dressing, he climbed down the stairs of the rectory and, leaning a bit on his knobby cane, trudged the few steps to the church. After taking out a key to unlock the front door of the church, the old priest heard something that gave him pause. "Father Brown was getting a bit deaf, but he was quite sure he had just heard a gunshot. He turned around, but he could not see much in the darkness. The lighted clock-face in the tower of the First National Bank building stood out starkly in the gloom, and he saw that it was exactly twenty-five minutes after five. Father Brown entered the church."

Book Description :

The fourth collection of Father Brown stories featuring the ingenious amateur detective. Ahead of a new series of the popular BBC adaptation starring Mark Williams, all five of Chesterton's original Father Brown books have been republished with charming and collectible Penguin covers. 'You see, I had murdered them all myself ... I had thought out exactly how a thing like that could be done, and in what style or state of mind a man could really do it. And when I was quite sure that I felt exactly like the murderer myself, of course I knew who he was.' Unassuming super-sleuth Father Brown has such brilliant powers of deduction that he knows more about crime than the criminals themselves. In this fourth volume of stories, the shabby priest unravels the most baffling conundrums involving, among others, a flying fish, a man with two beards and the Worst Crime in the World. G. K. Chesterton was born in 1874. He attended the Slade School of Art, where he appears to have suffered a nervous breakdown, before turning his hand to journalism. A prolific writer throughout his life, his best- known books include The Napoleon of Notting Hill (1904), The Man Who Knew Too Much (1922), The Man Who Was Thursday (1908) and the Father Brown stories. Chesterton converted to Roman Catholicism in 1922 and died in 1938. 'Chesterton knew how to make the most of a detective story' Jorge Luis Borges

Fans of Father Brown and Chesterton will be delighted by this latest volume in the Collected Works.

"What on earth is that?" asked Father Brown, and stood still. "Oh, a new religion," said Flambeau, laughing; "one of those new religions that forgive your sins by saying you never had any. Rather like Christian Science, I should think. The fact is that a fellow calling himself Kalon (I don't know what his name is, except that it can't be that) has taken the flat just above me. I have two lady typewriters underneath me, and this enthusiastic old humbug on top. He calls himself the New Priest of Apollo, and he worships the sun."
