Pete Johnson, a market trader who deals in stolen goods,gives his little son Mike an early Christmas present,an electric racing game Lunar Race 2000, but it is faulty and blows up,hospitalizing young Mike. Pete initially lies to hospital staff over the cause of his son's injuries but eventually admits to Eddie that the game is manufactured by the Wings' toy company. However Mr. Wing tells Eddie that it was withdrawn before it was ever marketed because of the fault and stored in the firm's warehouse. On examination it is found that ten of the games have been stolen. Eddie must find them to ensure that the children given them have a happy Christmas. Written by don @ minifie-1
