Synopsis: A former Sydneysider, Tom Carrell, is shot dead while riding a motor scooter, and young Sydney vice squad detective Peter Barnes, who is in Melbourne on exchange duties, assists the Homicide squad in their investigations.

Notes: First episode with George Mallaby as Det. Peter Barnes. The addition of a fourth detective was brought about because the expanding scope of Homicide was proving a strain on the existing actors for location filming. This had resulted in the use of a number of 'part time' detectives into the cast, most notably Det. Doug Marshall played by Gordon Timmins. Mallaby did not appear on the opening credits until ep. 133.
