Publisher's Summary

Shabby and lumbering, with a face like a Norfolk dumpling, Father Brown makes for an improbable super-sleuth. But his innocence is the secret of his success: refusing the scientific method of detection, he adopts instead an approach of simple sympathy, interpreting each crime as a work of art, and each criminal as a man no worse than himself...

Again a great title ruined by Audible laziness

It is incredible that Audible gets wonderful material and skillful performances and then, on this and in most titles made up of shorter pieces, screws up by failing to provide titles in its table of contents. How can these people be so lazy and stupid?

Good collection, bad editing, bad American accent

I liked these stories. It took me a few to get into them and I would often get confused between one story ending and another beginning which I solved by always adding a sleep timer to end at the end of the chapter. The reader is pretty good but there are some weird jumps and repeats in the editing and he has a pretty bad American accent. Overall, I liked that the same reader reads all of the stories.

Father Brown in any form is a treat

Father Brown is as charming here as he is anywhere. A wonderful rendition of much told mysteries makes them feel new again. Worth the time and money!

Amazing collections

This is an amazing collection of the Father Brown Mysteries. I love listening to this book and will repeat it. Every chapter is a complete mystery so it is easy to stop and start the book. This will be a treasure in your library

Not complete - recording terminates at 36%

Paired with ebook for immersion reading and enjoyed ... until recording terminates just as "Pendragon" tale ending

Good but not Great

While GKC is deserving of many accolades, writing not the least, writing murder mysteries are not that which elevates him above the common and on occasion, juvenile and even vulgar. AC Doyle sets the standard, peaks the interest, holds the attention, and leaves the reader desiring more.
