In The Purple Wig, an investigative journalist, Frances Finn, sets out to discover the strange secret of the dukes of Exmoor and the legend of their mysterious hereditary deformed ear. When Finn meets the current duke, he is wearing a hideous purple wig, which apparently he never takes off in the presence of anybody. It would appear to be an ugly way of hiding his deformity, but Father Brown, who is visiting the duke at the time, is suspicious about the motives for wearing such a wig. As the investigation progresses, the story takes a highly unexpected turn.

About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874–1936) was born in London. He went on to study art at the Slade School and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind’s spiritual progress. After his conversion to Catholicism in 1922, Chesterton wrote mainly on religious topics such as in Orthodoxy and Heretics. He is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown.
