Young Scott Tanner flees a gay Turkish bath after apparently killing a man for no reason and is found wandering, with no memory of what happened. Scott had been discharged from the army on mental health grounds and was seeing psychiatrist Stefan Lesley, who is murdered after speaking to Gently and whose will names six beneficiaries, including Scott, all soldiers. Stefan had previously worked at a sinister military establishment, Hopewood, where Gently finds himself stone-walled, but where Stefan had visited the day before his death. Eventually Gently learns from Hopewood psychiatrist Jennifer Bing that the six legatees had all been soldiers involved in drug trials as part of a Cold War experiment. They all had another secret which Stefan wanted to expose, resulting in his death at the hands of the person who brainwashed Scott and his friends.
