These are short stories that feature the character Father Brown, but only peripherally. The viewpoing is not Father Brown's. There is no character development - in fact, there is no character, period. I did want to listen to the stories - but this narrator is so grating that i ended up sampling all the versions available and buying a different version just to finish. It really was not worth it.
The narrator sounds fake and ponpous. This is not the first book he has ruined for me, but it will be the last.
The writing style is typical of the period - convuted and bristling with similes - he can't just stare into the fire, he has to gaze vacantly at the leaping and crcklong crimson flames as they danced like drunken faeries on the moldy, old logs....if you're okay with that, go for it - but sample all the versions before you get this one.

Nothing Like the Father Brown Stories on TV
These short stories had little in them to generate interest. Solve a few murders he did, but he went the long way around the lake to get there. Almost never did he have interaction with other than a couple characters at most. Overall, very disappointing after seeing the TV stories about Father Brown. Actually, Flambeau was more of a focus character and a murder solver than Father Brown.
