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. 2:

“The Invisible Man”
The inimitable Father Brown is called to help in the hunt for a mysterious killer, known only as an “invisible man.”

“The Wrong Shape”
Novelist Leonard Quinton has long been an eccentric, but his habits are driving his wife to the point of mania. When death finally comes to Quinton’s unconventional home, it’s fortunate that Father Brown and his good friend Flambeau are on hand.

“The Sins of Prince Saradine”
A dream holiday turns into a nightmare for Father Brown and his best friend, Flambeau. Why has the notorious Prince Saradine come to England, and who wants him dead?

“The Hammer of God”
Norman Bohun is a man with many enemies, so it comes as no surprise when he’s eventually murdered. But Father Brown’s biggest problem is in identifying a killer who must possess superhuman strength.

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.”
