The mundane North London suburb of Camden Town in winter is enlivened by the murder of an inventor by a seemingly invisible man. The body is found surrounded
by the inventor's grotesque robot figures - were they involved in some way in the killing? This story, from the collection "The Innocence of Father Brown" shows Flambeau in his first outing as a reformed man, ironically plying the profession of detective. The mild and insignificant Father Brown is on hand to help him.
the incidental music is available on the Naxos label
