When a prominent politician is shot dead on the hustings, Lieutenant Marc Edwards, eager for action, chases after an armed man he spots fleeing the scene - an armed man, but an innocent man, as Marc find out too late.Mortified by his mistake, Marc, who is now lieutenant in charge of security at Government House in Toronto, reluctantly accepts the help of th [...]
