In spite of the quiet setting, Bardo County in the American Midwest enjoys a lot of murders, and there is only person who is able to solve them: an old priest in his 90’s, serving as the Assistant Pastor as St. Dominic’s parish. His name is Father Brown. John Peterson has taken his expertise on the famous priest-sleuth and spun it into 44 irresistible short stories that will baffle you till each startling solution. It’s great to see Father Brown still in action. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ “A jewel, a treasure, a thing to be enjoyed again and again.” —G.J. MEYER, award-winning author of "A World Undone: The Story of the Great War" “Father Brown made his fame by being quite ordinary; he is as plain as a Norfolk dumpling. In these new stories, despite his age and his need for a cane, his mind continues to be as sharp as a tack, his powers of reasoning clear, his moral fiber, well, fibrous.” —NANCY CARPENTIER-BROWN, author of "The Father Brown Reader" and other books about Chesterton’s famous detective-priest. “Criminals from the merely inept to the fiendishly clever, beware: Father Brown is very much alive and on your tail in Bardo County.” —THERESE WARMUS, Literary Editor, Gilbert Magazine From “THE EXACT TIME”: "Father Brown did not own a watch and he never used an alarm clock. He simply woke up about five in the morning each day as a matter of long habit. The day of the murder was no exception. After dressing, he climbed down the stairs of the rectory and, leaning a bit on his knobby cane, trudged the few steps to the church. After taking out a key to unlock the front door of the church, the old priest heard something that gave him pause. "Father Brown was getting a bit deaf, but he was quite sure he had just heard a gunshot. He turned around, but he could not see much in the darkness. The lighted clock-face in the tower of the First National Bank building stood out starkly in the gloom, and he saw that it was exactly twenty-five minutes after five. Father Brown entered the church."

THE consulting-rooms of Dr Orion Hood, the eminent criminologist and specialist in certain moral disorders, lay along the sea-front at Scarborough, in a series of very large and well-lighted french windows, which showed the North Sea like one endless outer wall of blue-green marble. In such a place the sea had something of the monotony of a blue-green dado: for the chambers themselves were ruled throughout by a terrible tidiness not unlike the terrible tidiness of the sea. It must not be supposed that Dr Hood's apartments excluded luxury, or even poetry. These things were there, in their place; but one felt that they were never allowed out of their place. Luxury was there: there stood upon a special table eight or ten boxes of the best cigars; but they were built upon a plan so that the strongest were always nearest the wall and the mildest nearest the window. A tantalus containing three kinds of spirit, all of a liqueur excellence, stood always on this table of luxury; but the fanciful have asserted that the whisky, brandy, and rum seemed always to stand at the same level. Poetry was there: the left-hand corner of the room was lined with as complete a set of English classics as the right hand could show of English and foreign physiologists. But if one took a volume of Chaucer or Shelley from that rank, its absence irritated the mind like a gap in a man's front teeth. One could not say the books were never read; probably they were, but there was a sense of their being chained to their places, like the Bibles in the old churches. Dr Hood treated his private book-shelf as if it were a public library. And if this strict scientific intangibility steeped even the shelves laden with lyrics and ballads and the tables laden with drink and tobacco, it goes without saying that yet more of such heathen holiness protected the other shelves that held the specialist's library, and the other tables that sustained the frail and even fairylike instruments of chemistry or mechanics....

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of G. K. Chesterton’s Father Brown mysteries, BBC One Daytime has commissioned a new 10-part drama series for January 2013 to bring the priest-turned-detective back to life. BBC Books will be publishing a new edition of the original and complete short stories to tie-in to transmission. Set in the early-twentieth century, Father Brown's world is quintessentially English; crime scenes await in country houses, rural parish churches and quaint gardens as well as foggy London streets and shadowy railway stations. Father Brown may be a kindly cleric, but his bumbling nature disguises a detective mind to rival Sherlock Holmes... The character of Father Brown, brought to life by Mark Williams, is based on a real parish priest and the idea that priests, through hearing Confession, know the worst of human nature more than anyone, including the police. Father Brown uses his experiences to put himself into the mind of the criminal to solve each mystery and catch the perpetrators.

Example in this ebook CHAPTER I GETTING READY FOR THE PARTY "What's Hallowe'en mean, Father?" asked Thomas Brown as the family was seated at breakfast one morning late in October. "It means the evening before All Saints Day," answered Father Brown. "Do you remember what fun we had last year, Chuck?" remarked Toad, for Thomas was called "Toad" by his friends, and Charley was known as "Chuck." "I should say I do," he answered. The Browns had always lived in the town of Merryvale in a large, white house, set far back from the street, and not far away was the home of Toad's best friend Reddy and his brother Frank nick-named "Fat." "We had great fun when I was a boy," resumed Father Brown, "for my birthday anniversary falls on Hallowe'en and your grandmother would always have me invite the boys in the neighborhood to a party on that night." "Oh, I wish mine weren't two days later or I might have a party too," sighed Toad. "There's no reason, Thomas," said his mother, with a smile, "why you can't celebrate your birthday on Hallowe'en, if you'd like to." "Oh, Mother, that's fine," cried Toad, jumping up from the table and running around to his mother's place to give her a hearty hug. "You always make things right," he added. "We'd better ask all the fellows in school today," suggested Chuck, "for Saturday is Hallowe'en." Toad lost no time when he reached school that morning in giving his invitations to the party and all the boys were glad to accept, for they always had a fine time at Toad's house. When Saturday morning arrived, Mother Brown sent Toad off to the barn to get some large red apples. "Be sure they have strong stems," she warned him, "or I shall not be able to use them." The apples had been packed in barrels with plenty of straw to keep them from freezing, and when Toad reached the barn he pulled out one after another until he thought he had plenty. Just as he was wondering how many trips he would have to make to get all the apples to the house, a face peeped around the doorway. "Hello, Reddy," laughed Toad, "come on in and help me with these apples. I've got to carry them up to the house," he explained, "they're for the party tonight." "Couldn't we eat just one now?" asked Reddy, picking up from the floor a shining red apple. "Hey, not that one," cried Toad, "take one without a stem." "Huh," protested Reddy, "what difference does that make? I wasn't going to eat the stem." Toad laughed. "Mother wants strong stems on them. I don't know why," he explained. "What's a Hallowe'en party like?" inquired Reddy, seating himself on the top of a potato barrel. "Fat says," he continued, "that there's always ghosts." "Aw, who's afraid of baby things like ghosts," jeered Toad. "Well, I'm not either," protested Reddy. "I knew he was only trying to scare me." After the boys had carried the apples up to the house Mother Brown looked them over and exclaimed: "They're just what I want, such fine strong stems." To be continue in this ebook
