Crime Scene - - COLD CASE -

David Cal­lan, an out­cast se­cret agent, re­vis­its his for­mer depart­ment for talks. The ‘Sec­tion’ ex­ists to deal with un­de­sir­ables, peo­ple in ‘Red Files’. Its su­per­vi­sor, Hunter, of­fers to re­in­state Cal­lan but first he must carry out a killing. He must do this within one week, with­out help and with­out ask­ing why. His tar­get is Ru­dolf Sch­nei­der, a Ger­man busi­ness­man with whom he’s al­ready ac­quainted; Hunter has engineered Cal­lan’s place­ment in a com­pany in the same of­fice build­ing. Cal­lan sus­pects Hunter’s of­fer isn’t gen­uine and takes a lik­ing to the ex­tro­vert Ger­man, as they share an in­ter­est in war gam­ing. Nev­er­the­less, he or­ders an il­licit gun from Lonely, an old crim­i­nal as­so­ciate. Meres, a Sec­tion op­er­a­tive, keeps watch on Cal­lan. Need­ing to know why Hunter wants Sch­nei­der killed, Cal­lan searches the en­tre­pre­neur’s of­fice and home, find­ing he’s been sell­ing ar­ma­ments made by a Ja­panese firm, noguchi, to In­done­sia, where they are be­ing used to kill British troops. He specif­i­cally asks Lonely to get him a Noguchi Mag­num .38 cal­i­bre re­volver for the forth­com­ing ex­e­cu­tion.
