It’s great to see Father Brown still in action.~ ~ ~ ~ ~“A jewel, a treasure, a thing to be enjoyed again and again.”—G.J. MEYER, award-winning author of A World Undone: The Story of the Great War“Father Brown made his fame by being quite ordinary- he is as plain as a Norfolk dumpling. In these new stories, despite his age and his need for a cane, his mind continues to be as sharp as a tack, his powers of reasoning clear, his moral fiber, well, fibrous.”—NANCY CARPENTIER-BROWN, author of The Father Brown Reader and other books about Chesterton’s famous detective-priest.“Criminals from the merely inept to the fiendishly clever, beware: Father Brown is very much alive and on your tail in Bardo County.”—THERESE WARMUS, Literary Editor, Gilbert MagazineFrom “THE EXACT TIME”:Father Brown did not own a watch and he never used an alarm clock.

He simply woke up about five in the morning each day as a matter of long habit. The day of the murder was no exception. After dressing, he climbed down the stairs of the rectory and, leaning a bit on his knobby cane, trudged the few steps to the church. After taking out a key to unlock the front door of the church, the old priest heard something that gave him pause.Father Brown was getting a bit deaf, but he was quite sure he had just heard a gunshot.

He turned around, but he could not see much in the darkness. The lighted clock-face in the tower of the First National Bank building stood out starkly in the gloom, and he saw that it was exactly twenty-five minutes after five. Father Brown entered the church.~ ~ ~ ~ ~JOHN PETERSON is the author of The Return of Father Brown and G.K. Chesterton on Detective Fiction. He is the founding publisher of Gilbert, the magazine of the American Chesterton Society, and has edited three books on detective fiction. He lives in Barrington, Illinois.
