    The Innocence Of Father Brown Paperback Book

    Product Description

    In 1911, G K Chesterton published this first collection of twelve short stories featuring Father Brown, a priest-turned-detective who combines philosophical and spiritual reasoning with scientific observation to solve crimes. In doing so, Chesterton laid the foundation for future fictional detectives, such as Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Ellery Queen and Nero Wolfe.
    Unlike other writers of his time, who concocted outlandish crimes and intricate puzzles for the protagonist to solve, Chesterton pioneered the cosy mystery, narrowing the scope of the investigation to limited time, limited space and a limited number of suspects, with all the clues revealed to the reader as well as to the detective.
    Chesterton is highly regarded as a biting social commentator, and his humorous and insightful comparisons leave readers reeling. These tales are short, easy reads with strong plots, all connected by the clever detective with an above-average understanding of human nature.
