Owen Francis Dudley (1882-1952) was a Catholic priest who wrote detective fiction (amongst other things) that has often been compared to Chesterton’s Father Brown stories. This is the 2nd book in his Problems of Human Happiness series, depicting ‘the Cripple’ who lies confined to an Alpine monastery as he discerns the life options available to him.
