Overview

From London to Cornwall, then to Italy and France, a short, shabby priest takes on bandits, traitors and killers. Why is he so successful? The reason is that after years spent in the priesthood, Father Brown knows human nature and is not afraid of its dark side. Thus he understands criminal motivation and how to deal with it.THE ORACLE OF THE DOG ? Father Brown is staying as the guest of a retired colonel when his host is found dead, stabbed with a narrow blade, but no murder weapon.THE MIRACLE OF MOON CRESCENT ? A man is found hanged from a courtyard tree, despite no one ever seeing him leave his high-rise office.THE GREEN MAN ? Father Brown is out at sea when a Naval Admiral is discovered drowned, but a chance remark throws the whole case into perspective.THE QUICK ONE ? The sleuthing priest is faced with one of his most baffling mysteries when a loud-mouthed reverend is stabbed with an oriental dagger in the bar of a quiet hotel.
