The remains of a small boy discovered in a wall by workmen are identified as those of Tommy Keegan, who disappeared twenty-five years earlier. A neighbour, Edward Connor, a suspected paedophile, was arrested then but released for lack of evidence. Brooks and Devlin believe that Julia Mortimer, who used to play with Tommy when they were children, is subconsciously suppressing her memories of the events of the time, and, under regression hypnosis, names her estranged father Vernon not only as the killer but as a paedophile himself who molested her too. The court trial leads to angry exchanges between Julia and her father. Which one is telling the truth?
