Synopsis
Blade is a veteran private detective who is working on a murder case as a favor to a friend. The murder victim was the daughter of a well-known conservative politician named William Prince, someone who Blade knew long before he was prominent. As Blade works on the case, he becomes more and more disillusioned, and eventually, the prime suspect is someone who is very close to him and may have thought that the murder would benefit the girl's father.
