Peter is called out to investigate the murder of elderly Robert Deeks, an old soldier whose medals were also stolen. On the same night, Andy is accused of drunk driving, resulting in the death of an old cyclist, though Andy's friend, sober Arnie Bancroft, claims to have been the driver. With Andy on suspension, Peter looks into the murder and it turns out to be no coincidence that Mr Deeks' grandson Charley is in the same regiment as one Major Kassell, whom Andy suspects of being involved in a heroin-smuggling ring, and that Charley's fiancée Karen is a tarty waitress at the function that Andy attended. Peter learns why Andy let people assume he was a drunk driver as the parallel cases are closed.
