Read full description of the books:
The Invisible Man, is a short story from book five of the 'The Innocence of Father Brown' saga. The Sherlock Holmesean plot sees the hero of the piece, Angus, on the hunt for a criminal who commits a murder of ma man under the guard of 4 men, none of whom see him and such dub him “The Invisible Man. Angus enlists the help of Flambeau, a thief turned detective and a Roman catholic priest Father Brown to assist in solving the case.
It is essentially a locked room mystery which seeming picks up out of nowhere and is interesting to read. It is easy to see that G.K. Chesterton was greatly inspired by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes however Father Brown is in complete contrast of Sherlock Holmes. This is my first experience of the Edwardian detective stories of Father Brown and I enjoyed the journey and quality of the writing and will have to pick up the others in the series.
