Summary

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 award-winning Colonial Theatre on the Air has dramatized G.K. Chesterton’s Father Brown stories from The Innocence of Father Brown with a full cast, music score, and sound effects.

Included in Vol. 2:

The Invisible Man

The inimitable Father Brown is called to help in the hunt for a mysterious killer, known only as an "invisible man."

The Wrong Shape

Novelist Leonard Quinton has long been an eccentric, but his habits are driving his wife to the point of mania. When death finally comes to Quinton's unconventional home, it's fortunate that Father Brown and his good friend Flambeau are on hand.

The Sins of Prince Saradine

A dream holiday turns into a nightmare for Father Brown and his best friend, Flambeau. Why has the notorious Prince Saradine come to England, and who wants him dead?

The Hammer of God

Norman Bohun is a man with many enemies, so it comes as no surprise when he's eventually murdered. But Father Brown's biggest problem is in identifying a killer who must possess superhuman strength.

Candid whodunnit with a classic Engish flavour.

As with the first volume, the setting and cast performance is enjoyably British and true to Chesterton's style, but the stories are a bit too simple for keen readers of the genre, with the characters a little too bi-dimensional.

The gentle Father has more adventures and he travels. Entertaining, relaxing and well played.
