  • The sinister John Strake has a reputation as a necromancer of the Aleister Crowley variety, and seems to be bumping off the family of a millionaire. But who is this Strake? Father Brown meets him under peculiar circumstances...moreless

    9.0
    One of Chesterton's most famous remarks - to the effect that, once a man ceases to believe in God, he does not believe in nothing, but, far more dangerously, believes in anything - is perfectly illustrated by this fiendishly clever (or do I mean angelically clever?) story. Some very typical ideas and paradoxes are employed - we assume that, if a man answers his front door whilst weaing a dressing-gown, he must be the owner of the house - and the adaptation plays up the "Hammer horror film" aspects of the story nicely. Strake is a double-dyed villain, indeed, but Father Brown's belief in reason - and in God - saves the day.moreless
