Father Brown, Chesterton's lovable little Norfolk priest, has an uncanny knack of unraveling mysteries that leave lesser mortals floundering. Father Brown's cherubic face and apparent simplicity, his seemingly dull eyes behind thick glasses, his outward confusion, and his huge, shabby umbrella all combine to disguise amazing perspicacity and an uncanny understanding of the criminal mind at work. His sympathetic understanding of human nature never deserts him, even when he himself is touched by a breath of scandal, thanks to the hasty conclusions of a crusading newspaperman.

In this collection, Father Brown uses his distinctive style of deduction to solve the seemingly insoluble. This anthology includes eight delightfully clever mysteries: The Scandal of Father Brown, The Quick One, The Blast of the Book, The Green Man, The Pursuit of Mr. Blue, The Crime of the Communist, The Point of a Pin, and The Insoluble Problem.

    " I was pleasantly surprised by the King of the Paradox's take on the detective novel -- no chain of deductive reasoning for Father Brown, just a trap that springs shut in the opening paragraphs... and pages of delightful reveal for the reader. "

    " I think the highest praise that I can offer is that when I came to the last story in this last collection of Father Brown tales my immediate thought was "darn it, I've run out of them!" "

    " Similar to Sherlock Holmes books; that's why I liked it. Father Brown is a great character! "
