The police investigate the death of Dr. Hazel Mahoney who seems to have committed suicide in her office at Ballarat Hospital. Dr. Blake knew her well as they both served on the hospital board and finds it difficult to believe she would have taken her own life. The post mortem seems to support that view as it indicates she died while lying horizontally and then hanged after her death. Hazel had recently been sparring with an influential colleague, Dr. Geoffrey Nicholson and she had a major research proposal turned down by the hospital board. She had also been seen having an argument with one of the nurses. Blake once again oversteps the mark by publicly accusing Nicholson of wrongdoing further adding to his own declining reputation. Meanwhile, Blake receives news about his daughter. Written by
