The assault cropped up on CCTV, likewise the theft of a hand-bag stolen from hospital lab employee Veronica, in fact a Serb refugee who escaped as a small child and lives with her father Dr. Milan Vaspovic.Eve identifies the bag as having contained pure opium which Veronica and her two male Serb accomplices try to recover from the thieves, street kids who knew Boyd's son,Luke. Boyd gets to it first whilst failing to arrest Veronica whilst Eve takes a call to say that Luke is dead. Written by don @ minifie-1
