The Return of Father Brown

The Return of Father Brown

The Return of Father Brown is a collection of short, very short, stories featuring that soft-spoken priest with a knack for sleuthing, Father Brown. Originally written for Gilbert Magazine, a publication of the American Chesterton Society, these forty-four stories are short- each a mere three to four pages long, to account for issues of length related to magazine publishing. Mystery fans will find that the brevity of each story does not allow them the same satisfaction one might get from a full-length novel or even a longer short story. There is no opportunity for armchair sleuthing, as the plot, crime and characters cannot possibly be hashed out over a mere dozen paragraphs. However, that doesn’t mean this book is not a good read.
