In this first Fr. Brown mystery, Fr. Brown takes a back seat to Detective Valentin of the French police. Valentin is chasing a robber and is one step behind him. He is led on a merry chase from Harwich, through London to Hampstead Heath where Fr. Brown finally appears. Before the arrest is made, there is a discussion about the universality of Christian morality, which a century later this atheist did not find very tolerable. The chase itself is good fun. ( )
