Plot
Set in Kansas City in 1933, police detective Eastwood is now on bad terms with his former partner, Reynolds, who has turned in his badge for the trenchcoat of a private eye. Business is lousy, however, and when his partner, Roundtree, shows up with a huge wad of cash, Reynolds suspects things aren't quite on the up-and-up. When Roundtree is killed by the mob, Reynolds sets out to avenge his partner. Eastwood, meanwhile, tails Reynolds in hopes of ruining the mob as well.
