Editor reviews

With his appealing performance, narrator David Timson is sure to win even more fans for G. K. Chesterton's unlikely sleuth Father Brown. Years of listening to his parishioners' confessions, coupled with his own keen mind, has given Father Brown the insight to analyze and understand criminal behavior. Timson imbues Father Brown's voice with the kindness and patience one would expect, bolstering it with gentle firmness and resolution. In this story, a blind woman falls to her death in an elevator shaft. Is it an accident or does it have something to do with her involvement in a cult of sun-worshippers? Listeners will enjoy how Father Brown solves the mystery in his own unassuming way.

This is a story from the The Innocence of Father Brown - Volume 2 collection.
Here are the six final stories from The Innocence of Father Brown relating the crime-solving adventures of a rather unconventional detective. Having accumulated wisdom and empathy from years of listening to the dark confessions of his parishioners, in a flash Father Brown is able to solve mysteries that confound all others. Here is an eccentric and loveable character that will appeal to fans of the legendary sleuth Sherlock Holmes. The stories are engagingly read by David Timson: "The Wrong Shape", "The Sins of Prince Saradine", "The Hammer of God", "The Eye of Apollo", "The Sign of the Broken Sword", and "The Three Tools of Death".
