He is asked to retrieve a famous painting which was stolen in a robbery and murder case, and negotiates with the criminal without telling the police. As a result, he successfully recovers the famous painting in exchange for 100 million yen. However, the painting is dismissed as a forgery by the art critic Takemura Yoshio and Shirai is backed into a corner. This is actually a trap that the criminal has laid for him and then the criminal proposes a deal to help to sell the real painting. Shirai’s life is targeted by a man hired by his client. But he manages to overcome this crisis through the efforts of detective Togawa Takeshi of the First Investigative Division who is pursuing the case, and Nakano Hitomi, a General Affairs Section employee who has tracked Togawa down for discrepancies in his receipts. However, … …
