Review:

David Timson is one of those audio-book readers who, rather than giving a signature performance like some of the big stars of the genre, simply inhabits and projects his subjects with a delicate empathy, so it s the book and its characters that linger in the mind. Which makes him an excellent choice for GK Chesterton s tales of the unassuming Catholic priest who claims that his work at the confessional (where he has to do next to nothing but hear men s real sins ) puts him in an excellent position to solve the bizarre crimes that come his way in pre-first-world-war England. Chesterton s prose can be as ostentatiously extravagant as an Edwardian grandee s moustache, and is marred by a breezy anti-semitism. This, though, does not seem to be shared by the unassuming cleric, whose humble conviction that his God will eventually triumph over the souls of even the most evil of criminals is the quiet but insistent heartbeat of these unusual exercises in detective fiction. --Karen Robinson, The Sunday Times
