  • Whilst Father Brown and Mrs McCarthy are in the bank there is an armed hold-up but the robbers flee after the vault is opened to reveal the corpse of Billy Flanders, shady son-in-law of bank manager Samuel Harrogate. A note in the dead man's pocket incriminates Harrogate and Sullivan arrests him. Father Brown however realizes that the two bank clerks stand to gain by the manager's removal and later recognizes one of the robbers who tells the priest who planned the robbery. Father Brown comes to wonder why it was so important that he witnessed the failed heist before coming to discover the murderer's identity.

  • While Father Brown and Mrs. McCarthy discuss money matters with bank manager Samuel Harrogate, two armed and masked men enter the bank to rob it. They force Harrogate to open the vault where they find the dead body of Harrogates son-in-law, Billy Flanders, lying on the floor. Father Brown is immediately puzzled by the fact that the gunman wanted him to accompany them to vault and be present when the vault door was opened. Inspector Sullivan however arrests Harrogate after finding an incriminating note in the dead man's pocket. There is a reason, of course, why Father Brown's presence was required and that ultimately leads him to the killer.

  • During a robbery in the Kembleford bank branch, Billy Flanders, shady son-in-law of bank manager Samuel Harrogate, is murdered. It looks like an inside job, but rather the accepting Harrogate's arrest, Brown, who feels he was lured to attend, enlists Sid's criminal expertise to prove how it was done while working out possible motives, but their prime suspect isn't afraid to turn on them.
