The first story in which the reader is given the pleasure to meet father brown. Small, fussy, absent-minded man! Who would have thought that this unprepossessing exterior hides a mighty intellect and high morals!
The story begins quite interestingly, with the arrival in London Valentina – detective with a worldwide reputation. He is pursuing a known criminal – a thief and a con man Hercule (you? Hercule!) Flambeau. Valentina have a rather strange method, which, however, is justified. Here and there he stumbles upon the strangeness of the past which simply can not pass.
Largely relying on luck, he is on the right track. After all, catching Flambeau has long been his cherished goal. And the thief, in turn, goes to anything for the sake of possessing a sapphire cross – a relic that is in the hands of a modest Catholic priest. Will Flambeau be able to seize the cross? And can father brown protect himself and his precious burden from the evil encroachments?
