Dr. Blake attends to yet another death at Patrick Tyneman's shoe factory. In this case it appears to be an accident, the third such death, and Blake contacts his friend, journalist Joy McDonald, who writes a scathing story for her newspaper. The post mortem however reveals that the dead man was struck on the back of the head and that they are in fact dealing with a murder. Meanwhile, Mattie O'Brien discovers that one of the factory workers has syphilis but the young woman flatly refuses treatment. Mattie and Dr. Blake soon conclude that something is very wrong in that factory and that the immigrant workers there, both male and female, are being exploited. Written by garykmcd
