● Includes Rare Additional Material
Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Lieutenant Columbo, even the gruff Sam Spade all owe a great deal to G.K. Chesterton's beloved amateur detective Father Brown. Through five books (and, for this edition, obscure additional sources) armchair sleuths have followed the frumpy little priest through a jubilee of stories, over half a hundred delicious mysteries perfectly suited to lazy mornings, warm afternoons -- or dark and stormy nights. Chesterton's plots never fail to satisfy his readers, and in this collection of the entire original Father Brown library you will find hours of enjoyment.
Chesterton never stooped to mere violence to advance his stories, making this collection as suitable for younger mystery fans as it is for older fans. Like his creator, Father Brown combines practical wisdom with a sparkling sense of humor. If you love a mystery, you owe it to yourself to spend some time with Father Brown.
This special Kindle Edition includes several rare additional stories, annotations, and a brief introduction by the Editor.
