Gilbert Keith Chesterton

The Innocence of Father Brown

Father Brown is a Catholic priest, but a slightly unusual one in that he’s also an amateur detective. Unlike his more famous literary cousin Sherlock, Father Brown takes a less analytical and more intuition-oriented approach to solving the many murders that he happens to come across.
This collection of short murder mysteries is Brown’s first appearance on the literary stage. In it we see him practicing his unique brand of sleuthing alongside his sometimes-partner, the reformed master criminal Flambeau.

    There was noth­ing not­able about him, ex­cept a slight con­trast between the hol­i­day gaiety of his clothes and the of­fi­cial grav­ity of his face.

    Only a man who knows noth­ing of mo­tors talks of mo­tor­ing without pet­rol; only a man who knows noth­ing of reason talks of reas­on­ing without strong, un­dis­puted first prin­ciples.

    The criminal is the creative artist; the detective only the critic
