Storyline

Higher Ground, a boarding school run by strict ex-Army major Hansford and his wife Jean, is being plagued by sadistic, sick stunts but Hansford refuses to call in the police so Jean employs Eddie. Hansford, however, is wholly uncooperative. Jean tells Eddie that Hansford has a son,Rodney, by his first wife Betty. Betty committed suicide and Rodney was recently discharged from the same psychiatric hospital where Eddie was once a patient. Jean is killed but Rodney denies any involvement. Then Eddie learns of another possible suspect and also the reason why Hansford has resisted any contact with the law. Written by don @ minifie-1
