[ Story ]

A series of murders has been committed by someone with a new model gun, a Mord-Gessel X 38. Indeed, Daisuke himself is almost killed while investigating the case. This occurred while he was with Ritsuko, daughter of a company president. Detective Kimura thinks that the president himself, returned to Japan after an absence of fifteen years, might be the killer, or at least the man who supplied the gun. Ritsuko's father limps and though she explains this as the result of a traffic accident, Kimura remembers a narcotics smuggler named Suginami who shot himself in the ankle and then escaped from the hospital. He believes that the company president and the drug peddler are the same.
And so he is, but in the showdown Kimura is seriously injured. Daisuke determines to avenge his friend and solve the whole case. The company president, realizing that the end is near, tries to sell the murder weapon, but Daisuke is too fast for him and disposes of one smuggler after the other. In the end he also avenges Ritsuko whose real father, it turns out, was killed by the imposter.
