Описание:

Critic, author and debunker extraordinaire, G.K.Chesterton (1874-1936) delighted in probing the ambiguities of Christian theology. A number of his most successful attempts at combining first-rate fiction with acute social observation appear in this original selection from his best detective stories featuring the priest-sleuth Father Brown. A Chestertonian version of Sherlock Holmes, this little cleric from Essex - with `a face as round and dull as a Norfolk dumpling` and `eyes as empty as the North Sea` - appears in six suspenseful, well-plotted tales: `The Blue Cross`, `The Sins of Prince Saradine`, `The Sign of the Broken Sword`, `The Man in the Passage`, `The Perishing of the Pendragons` and `The Salad of Colonel Cray.` An essential item in any mystery collection, these delightful works offer a particular treat for lovers of vintage detective stories, and will engage any reader.
