Christine 'Chris' Tanner (15) body washes up on the Santa Monica beach, found drowned in ditch water, with a surf board head-wound. Dad Jack Tanner, a construction worker whose wife died in a truck crash, claims the decent surfer crowd turned her away from drugs, but Philip 'Flipper' Handler has an assault record. Her old friend Darlene said she also saw an old creep. Jane helps the CBI investigate surfers and Danny's father's construction firm, both with discrete other activities. They find a worker's corps and links, Patrick uses hypnosis his way and taps into a web of lies he then sees through.

Thank you very much, ma'am, but, uh, we don't need a grief councilor.
We know how to grieve.
Good, because I'm not a grief councilor. Principal didn't want to say "homicide detective" in front of the other students.
