    G. K. Chesterton’s Father Brown is perhaps the most lovable amateur detective ever created. This short, shabby priest with his cherubic, round face attracts situations that baffle everyone - except Father Brown and his rather naïve wisdom. The twelve enthralling stories in this book take Father Brown from London to Cornwall, from Italy to France, as he gets involved with bandits, treason, murder, curses, and an American crime-detection machine.

    El conjunto de los relatos del padre Brown constituye quizá la obra más popular de Chesterton. El simpático cura-detective que los protagoniza resuelve en ellos, armado únicamente con su paraguas, su inocencia y su sabiduría, intrincados casos gracias a un conocimiento sencillo a la par que es profundo de la naturaleza humana. Chesterton crea este singular personaje para mostrar que sólo una mirada sincera y que reconozca el misterio que la realidad encierra es capaz de salvaguardar la razón.
