The Empire Society, a white supremacist group run by a man called Hulton, is terrorising blacks and trying to forcibly evict them. Cowley and Doyle are shocked at Bodie's apparent colour prejudice when he meets a mixed race married couple but after Bodie is hospitalised Doyle goes undercover and joins the Empire Society, learning that a property developer called Miller is using the group to evict black tenants. However, the biggest shock comes when Miller's identity is revealed, though Bodie, grateful to black hospital staff for pulling him through, learns to overcome his prejudice.
