Mary Phillips asks for Eddie's help after her ex-husband Dennis snatches their little daughter June, a ward of court, with a view to taking her back to Australia with him. After hearing Eddie's radio appeal Dennis and June go on the run. With the police disapproving of his involvement Eddie's work is not helped when Mary's ebullient father Tom insists on interfering in the case. Eddie also notes that Mary is a hard drinker and, given June's own choice to stay with her father, he wonders whether she might be better off with Dennis. Sometimes, however, what is right and what is the law do not coincide, as Eddie learns. Written by

D'you mean one of those two gorillas is actually the little girl's grandfather?
Yeah, that one. Said he was anxious to be of assistance. He even offered to break both my kneecaps just to show his enthusiasm.
Hmmm. Very nice. What will they break if you actually find father and daughter?
