Hawk agrees to, though he’s sure he won’t find the body it might once have been attached to. At the same time, Hawk’s actor son Jaikie comes to England for the London premier of a film he’s starring in. Although on a publicity round, Jaikie’s far more interested in the murder which the plate might point to. Hawk’s girlfriend, Dr. Laura Peterson, discovers from an engraving on the side that it was made for The Chiltern Clinic, specifically for a young man called Patrick Scott, who broke a metatarsal in a ski-ing accident.However, next day Laura discovers that all trace of Patrick Scott has been wiped from the National Health Service computer. Hawk has to concede that it’s probably because someone’s been asking questions about him. But why do they want the world to believe that Patrick never existed?
