The head of the police department knows that Harry is the one detective who can bring the killer to justice, but Hole is enjoying his retirement right now.

At the same time, these murders are putting the whole city in great danger and folks are starting to panic. And there's something about them that only the hard-boiled and experienced detective can notice.
