Deirdre is addicted to tranquillizers in return for which she agrees to pose for nude photos which White uses to blackmail her. At the same time Quirke deals with the suicide of housewife Geraldine Millican, who like Deirdre posed nude to get her tablets. After Quirke has failed to warn Phoebe about White he persuades Garret to take drastic action, revealing White's true nature to Phoebe.
