An unmotivated bashing looks like it could be the beginning of a series of similar loutish crimes. Suspicion falls on the son of a wealthy self-made man, who uses money to buy affection and obedience from his children, and is forced to face the fact that the making of money is not the answer to all human problems. Const. Kevin Dwyer has applied for CIB work and has been accepted for detective training, which will require his transferring away from Yarra Central.
