Gardners Short, shabby and unassuming, Roman Catholic priest Father Brown is an unlikely investigator. But his keen mind and understanding of human nature enable him to solve cases featuring a master criminal and a precious silver relic; a theft at a hotel; a strange tower and an even stranger story; black magic - and white magic; and a murdered judge.
