About the author

G. K. Chesterton (1874–1936) was a prolific English journalist and author best known for his mystery series featuring the priest-detective Father Brown and for the metaphysical thriller The Man Who Was Thursday. Baptized into the Church of England, Chesterton underwent a crisis of faith as a young man and became fascinated with the occult. He eventually converted to Roman Catholicism and published some of Christianity’s most influential apologetics, including Heretics and Orthodoxy.

    In this first Fr. Brown mystery, Fr. Brown takes a back seat to Detective Valentin of the French police. Valentin is chasing a robber and is one step behind him. He is led on a merry chase from Harwich, through London to Hampstead Heath where Fr. Brown finally appears. Before the arrest is made, there is a discussion about the universality of Christian morality, which a century later this atheist did not find very tolerable. The chase itself is good fun.
