The Innocence of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton – Part One
We discuss the first five stories in G.K. Chesterton’s debut outing with his most iconic detective, Father Brown. An innocuous preacher with an eye for the human spirit, Father Brown cares less for the wrong and right of the law, than the soul. In The Blue Cross, the great detective Valentin hunts down the notorious Flambeau, one of the world’s most famous criminals, only to be met with a curious trail of evidence on the tail of two men of the cloth. How Father Brown’s clergy led him to learn all he has about the human soul, we may never truly know.
