On a cold Sunday morning, ex-copper Ray Flowers has little more to worry about than tackling an unwieldy honeysuckle in his garden. But his weekend peace is suddenly interrupted by an unexpected phone call. A dangerous drug is back on the streets, and policeman Martin Galloway appeals to Ray for help in catching the supplier, the enigmatic Angel Eyes. At first Ray wants little to do with the case.
