One of the most memorable sleuths in the canon of detective fiction has to be Father Brown, the small priest with “a face as round and dull as a Norfolk dumpling”, but who nevertheless outwits the greatest criminal minds with his wisdom regarding human nature. Brought to life here by actor Kevin O’Brien in a series of dramatic readings, this unabridged audio book of The Innocence of Father Brown also features an introduction and conclusion to each chapter by Dale Ahlquist, president of the American Chesterton Society and host of EWTN’s immensely popular television series, G.K. Chesterton: The Apostle of Common Sense.
First published in 1910, The Innocence of Father Brown includes many of the greatest Father Brown stories, including The Blue Cross, The Flying Stars, and The Hammer of God. So, sit back and enjoy the brilliance and wit of G.K. Chesterton’s inimitable Father Brown.
