Police Sgt. Frank Brannen is distraught over his runaway daughter, and tracks down her pusher/boyfriend, threatening to kill him for getting his daughter addicted to drugs. Sgt. Brannen's daughter walks into the apartment, and it's obvious she is pregnant. After she runs away, Sgt. Brannen is knocked out from behind, and when he wakes up his daughter's boyfriend is found shot with Brannen's own gun. Arrested for murder, he hires Orwell to find the real killer and locate his runaway daughter. The ensuing investigation leads to the murder of a good friend of Harry's, and more drug-addled suspects and witnesses. Written by Clintessence
