Sir Arthur Travers, a brilliant conservative jurist known for his controversial views, is found murdered by gunshot in the garden of his estate. Because he was murdered outdoors, the police cannot explain how an indoor mirror in his house came to be shattered. Osric Orm, a Fabian Socialist known for his radical views, is charged with the crime, but Father Brown instinctively believes him innocent and sets out to find the real killer.

Inspector James Bagshaw: Yes, I'm glad you can identify him, but you did enter the garden in an irregular fashion.
Father Brown: Oh,yes, he did enter the garden in an irregular fashion. All the best people seem to get over garden walls these days. I believe you did yourself. I enterd the garden by the gate, and then entered through the house by the front door. I often enter houses that way.
