Audio Book Summary

The Blue Cross is the first Father Brown short story by Chesterton, who went on to write an entire series of Father Brown Mysteries. In this story, Aristide Valentin, head of the Paris Police, is on the trail of the world's most famous criminal, Flambeau, who is a master of disguise, and may appear to be anyone. Valentin deduces that Flambeau is going to try and steal The Blue Cross, a priceless silver cross with precious blue stones. Valentin must stop him, but in this case it is actually Father Brown who is the better detective.

    Of course, Mark Twain’s wit and ability as a wordsmith shine as does the crafting of the tale itself. He is so masterful. However, most importantly, the narrator does an excellent job giving each character a distinctive voice and makes this an enjoyable listen.

    An American who can’t pronounce English place names is a big failure for me. Quirky little story based on a strong literary character. Having read some of the stories it was predictable.
