June 2013 — Father Brown v. Sherlock Holmes, Dueling Detectives 

 

The Sign of the Broken Sword by G. K. Chesterton

Father Brown takes Flambeau on a pilgrimage to the tomb of internationally revered war hero General Sir Arthur St. Clare. The general died in battle in Brazil, and part of the monument, lying next to the statue of the general, is a broken sword, the way it was found at the end of his last battle. No one knows the real story behind how the sword was broken, except Father Brown.
