Archa Wachowicz
AudioFile, September 2010

Don’t let the quaint title deceive you—this is Chesterton at his most artfully wicked. David Timson excels as gentle Father Brown, as well as the many other diverse characters. Timson’s self-effacing tone is just right for Father Brown, and he also boldly taps a variety of British accents to clearly identify both the locale of stories and the class of various characters. The music of Reicha Wind Quintets shines in the interludes between these six stories. Father Brown’s considered deductions are irrefutable, employing subtle philosophy and psychology rather than forensic analysis. His thoughtful perspicacity startles even the most confident of criminals.
