General Description

Who better to catch crooks than a man who knows how crooks think? And who better knows the ways of crooked thoughts than a priest? While respecting the confidentiality of confession, Father Brown uses his exposure to wickedness to fuel his quest for good. While Sherlock Holmes relies on clues and deductive reasoning, Father Brown’s intimate knowledge of human nature gives him a keen intuition that helps him solve the mysteries and crimes of nineteenth and twentieth century England.
