Publisher's Summary

This collection of 12 short stories is part of the Father Brown series, about a mystery-solving Catholic priest. In a refreshing contrast with the deductive detective Sherlock Holmes, Father Brown works intuitively. Through many years of hearing confessions, he has developed an uncanny ability to see inside the minds of criminals. Although he appears unobtrusive and dowdy, with a face "as round and dull as a Norfolk dumpling", he is also surprisingly worldly for a priest.
Set in rural England in the early 20th century, these vivid and original stories range from kidnappings, to escaped prisoners, stolen condiments, stabbings, a dead prince, confessions, a mysterious burning tower, and even a purple wig.
