Father Brown

I finished a book of short stories this morning.  The Annotated Innocence of Father Brown, by G.K. Chesterton and edited by Martin Gardner, has a dozen short stories about Father Brown, a Catholic priest who solves crimes in Edwardian England. I've been trying to broaden my English mystery knowledge and enjoyed branching out into different authors.  The mysteries were clever (The Invisible Man is particularly good) and the criminals were interesting.  I liked it but the fact that the detective was Catholic priest put me off a bit.

FYI, if you go on amazon and search "annotated innocence of father brown", the second link that pops up is The General Principles of Astrology by Aleister Crowley. huh????
