The Sins of the Father
3 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Doctor Mordaunt Jackson, a psycho-analyst has arrived in Kembleford mainly to write and gives a lecture in the village hall. He has taken time to give a demonstration of his hypnosis skills on Lady Felicia.

Meanwhile an aircraft tycoon Robert Twyman is in receipt of a note telling him that that if he does not confess then his piano playing son Calvin will be killed. He is later found strangled. Twyman's butler is a suspect but when later a former journalist who gave up the profession to go into music is also found dead then Twyman becomes a suspect and is arrested.

Father Brown believes that Twyman once made dangerous aircraft and believes that the deaths could be linked to the accidents involving his planes and thinks Mordaunt Jackson's skills in hypnosis might hold all the right notes.

An intriguing episode although it might be deemed to be far fetched but enjoyable. You could sympathize with the murderer's motives.
