About this Recording

CHESTERTON, G.K.: Innocence of Father Brown (The), Vol. 1 (Unabriged)

‘Has it never struck you that a man who does next to nothing but hear men’s real sins is not likely to be wholly unaware of human evil?’

In The Innocence of Father Brown, G.K. Chesterton explores the darker side of human nature—the diversity of evil—as revealed in murder, theft and madness. Father Brown, a seemingly insignificant Catholic priest, unravels these often bizarre and surreal puzzles through his intuition rather than deduction.
