On the face of it Winthrop House Mission in rural Surrey is a home for down-and-outs, run by Dr. Pederson, but it is in fact a cover. Pederson helps criminals escape by performing plastic surgery to give them new faces. Sharron and Craig pose as gangsters requiring this service but when Craig recognizes Pederson as an ex-Nazi who performed operations in Dachau, he aims to kill them both. Fortunately Richard is on hand, masquerading as a down-and-out to telepathically communicate the plan to his colleagues.[2]
