When janitor Jonathan Waldman is killed by a letter bomb early suspicions are off a race crime as he was Jewish until the police find out that he was blackmailing student Simon Wells for stealing drugs from Thameside University,where Jonathan was employed. Simon admits to making the letter bomb but his brief,Rachel Mathesson,pleads diminished responsibility as Simon as the boy has a mental condition. He was seeing psychiatrist Dr Middlebrook,who could be responsible for Simon's condition as he failed to continue his treatment in return for money from a German pharmaceutical firm. The revelation that Simon has a brain tumour leads to the doctor being tried for manslaughter,after which Jake visits his elderly mother in a care home.
