Editorial Reviews

In "The Blue Cross", G. K. Chesterton first introduces Father Brown, his famed fictional detective who moonlights as a Catholic priest (or vice versa). Unlike the other 50 detective stories in the Father Brown series, this plot follows the action of Valentin, head of the Paris police department, rather than the priest himself. There is, however, plenty of Father Brown's sagacity, reason, and psychological insight on display here.
James Arthur brings a classical English accent to this tale of cross-Channel intrigue. When the performance requires it, Arthur easily slips into a French accent or French prose itself, but for the most part his absorbing voice is staunchly British, worthy of a highly educated clergyman.

Publisher's Summary

Listeners will delight in these masterful chronicles of the adventures and mishaps of Father Brown. Small, round-faced, and engagingly innocent, Brown is a Roman Catholic priest from East Anglia. He also happens to be a top-notch detective, possessing that rarest of all gifts - an intuition that never fails.
