The Innocence of Father Brown is the first, and in many people's view the best, collection of Chesterton's much-loved Father Brown stories. Father Brown, the unassuming Roman Catholic Priest from East Anglia, has long been a favorite of detective story fans everywhere for his charming and disarming personality and his infallible ability to solve crimes by skillful intuitive methods.
As well as annotation, Martin Gardner provides a substantial introduction placing the stories in the context of Chesterton's other work, and includes a selection of the many delightful illustrations the stories have inspired. There is also a very full bibliography.
