Billy is visiting Hit, a frightening young man who asks the private eye to investigate a horrible crime he thinks he was a child witness. Billy fails to recall more precise details as he is obviously in a state of mental illness. The Striker insists he is genuine and offers support. Still, the detective’s recent fame has complicated secret operations.
In the meantime, Robin’s privacy remains unchangeable because her relationship feels the pressure of her devotion to her work. Tom Edge, who has previously adapted The Silkworm and Career of Evil, returns with Sue Tully as screenwriter and producer.
