    The Great Detectives: G.K. Chesterton – Father Brown by John Peterson GO BACK TO ARTICLES MAIN PAGE “My first case was just a small private affair about a man’s head being cut off.” Father Brown in “The Mask of Midas” It may surprise some of today’s readers of detective fiction to learn that Gilbert Keith [ ]. First published in , The Innocence of Father Brown contains stories involving one of the greatest characters in the history of detective fiction: Father Brown. He is a Roman Catholic priest who has an uncanny insight into human evil. Rather than the large serial villains in, for example, Sherlock Holmes stories, the mysteries Father Brown solved were more local .

    These four stories test Father Brown in many ways, creating headaches a plenty. However, Father Brown is nothing if not redoubtable and whilst Chesterton's stories are, in his own words, "very slight and improbable", his method is all his own. Bill Wallis captures perfectly the mood and tone of Father Brown in this collection. About The Complete Father Brown Stories. All the Father Brown stories from five classic volumes—in one definitive edition With his cherubic face and unworldly simplicity, his glasses and huge umbrella, Father Brown is one of the most unforgettable characters in literature.
