A baby's corpse is found in a bag at the local hospital, poisoned by gas fumes from a faulty heater in his mother's flat. A fellow tenant, Mike Turner, has been bribed by the landlady, Maureen Walters, to harass the occupants into leaving so that she can renovate the building for higher rents and he is charged with tampering with the heater and killing the child. Although a mistrial is initially called when the building's French caretaker is mistranslated, D.S. Brooks gets the trial back on track when he finds that Mrs. Walters has been bribing environmental health officers and persuades Turner to testify against her. Written by
