About the author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are The Man Who Was Thursday, a metaphysical thriller, and The Everlasting Man, a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as Orthodoxy and Heretics. Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in The Innocence of Father Brown. Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62.

    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.
