“You may think a crime horrible because you could never commit it. I think it horrible because I could commit it.”


In “The Secret of Father Brown” G.K. Chesterton bookends eight classic Father Brown mysteries with a fascinating encounter between the detective-Priest and an admiring yet inquisitive American.

The latter is keen to discover the truth behind Father Brown’s allegedly mystical ability to solve crime. The modest cleric is very keen to dispel any myths about his possessing “magical powers” and patiently explains to his inquirer what lies behind his “secret”.

“You see, it was I who killed all those people”

Once recovered from the initial shock of this revelation, and after the recounting of the eight mysteries, the American soon discovers the real meaning behind Father Brown’s cryptic confession.
