When Armstrong finds out that Royce and his daughter are planning to get married, he ignores Royce's fifteen months of sobriety and discharges him. Soon after, Armstrong is found with a broken neck outside a high window on his estate, the apparent victim of foul play. Father Brown assists Inspector Gilder in uncovering the facts of the case.
