CHESTERTON, G.K.: Innocence of Father Brown (The), Vol. 2 (Unabridged)

The unremarkable Catholic priest, Father Brown, combines intuition and a profound interest in human nature to solve more crimes that are seemingly improbable. A prophet of a new religion appears in Westminster. Why does an Italian Prince seek exile in Norfolk? Who killed a jovial old philanthropist, and why? A decadent poet is inexplicably murdered in his own home. Did God kill a priest’s brother? What really happened in a British battle glorified in history?

This second volume of stories from The Innocence of Father Brown presents six crimes, which are at times surreal, bizarre, and always as cryptic as a crossword.
