First Broadcast on : 22 July 1978

A patient of a geriatric ward goes missing. It isn’t too long before he is found – murdered.

Who would want to murder a man well into his 80’s. Surely if they wanted his money, they wouldn’t have long to wait. There are many easier ways to earn money, they could take a lump sum from a pension or look at other money making schemes.

The police are baffled and the sexy sister on the ward isn’t doing much to help their concentration. Furthermore at least one of her male colleagues has more than a professional interest in her.

Peter Whalley’s comic thriller keeps the listener guessing to the last minute.
