Finally, a Crime Novelist Gets Some Respect

Pope blesses plans to make writer of Father Brown stories G.K. Chesterton a saint

Chesterton, of course, was the model John Dickson Carr used for his detective Gideon Fell (just as he used Winston Churchill as a model for Sir Henry Merrivale) and I find it hard to see Gideon Fell as a saint.

Why not Leslie Charteris?

Doesn't a "saint" have to perform miracles to earn the title?
