Lacking any reported major crimes, Sherlock listens in to the police radio and rushes to a suspicious business jet crash, chartered by a law firm. He soon proves that one lawyer victim was in fact murdered earlier and elsewhere with a missing wrench, and tests various theories about motives and opportunities involving law - and air firms. Sherlock rightly dismisses Watson's insistence to attend a dinner with his visiting father as never going to happen and pulls a clever-cruel prank, then makes up by confiding something that slipped out from his private past.
