These are very good stories, excellent short detective yarns in the classic British tradition of Sherlock Holmes--puzzling concoctions of mysterious crimes, dubious suspects and ambiguous clues. They are among the best of the Father Brown stories.

G. K. Chesterton's Biography:
G. K. Chesterton

G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) was a prolific English journalist and author best known for his mystery series featuring the priest-detective Father Brown and for the metaphysical thriller The Man Who Was Thursday. Baptized into the Church of England, Chesterton underwent a crisis of faith as a young man and became fascinated with the occult. He eventually converted to Roman Catholicism and published some of Christianity's most influential apologetics, including Heretics and Orthodoxy.
