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 award-winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air has dramatized G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown stories from The Innocence of Father Brown with a full cast, music score, and sound effects.

Included in Vol. 1:

“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 Flying Stars”
Father Brown has been invited to a Christmas masquerade, which becomes the target of another robbery.

Quotes & Awards

  • “G. K. Chesterton’s tales [are] of the unassuming Catholic priest who claims that his work at the confessional (where he has to do ‘next to nothing but hear men’s real sins’) puts him in an excellent position to solve the bizarre crimes that come his way in pre–First World War England…The unassuming cleric, whose humble conviction that his God will eventually triumph over the souls of even the most evil of criminals, is the quiet but insistent heartbeat of these unusual exercises in detective fiction.” 

    Sunday Times (London)

  • “[Father Brown], the little, quiet, grey-eyed priest, with his air of guileless simplicity, outrivals the feats of Old Sleuth and Sherlock Holmes, for he is a true expert in criminology.”

About the Author
