Peter is briefly admitted to hospital for tests and, on discharge, is engaged by David Morston, whose older brother Lord Robert, a mad ex-junkie, is selling off parts of the family estate and its titles when not cavorting nude in the fountain or shooting at people. Unusually, Beatrice, who was in rehab with Robert, helps resolve matters, showing that Robert's actions are, ultimately, for a good cause. Lyle suspects a local chemical firm of river pollution but he discovers that large corporations are not always in the wrong. Peter is diagnosed with diabetes, but blood tests show that he is not Beatrice's brother, in fact he is not Peter Kingdom at all, as Auntie Auriel confirms.
