With the aide of Emotionless, Iron Hands barely defeats the suicidal Sima. Now the four imperial constables are holding the kung fu fighting sadist captive to lure out the leader of the 13 masked killers. However, the seemingly unstoppable mastermind has since eluded Cold-Blooded, Life-Snatcher and the rest.
All clues point to a high-ranking official with traitorous intent. Yet, when this official is found near death - an obvious victim of the 13 - suspicions vanish. Still, the incident does point Master Shuge to the truth.
Has this revelation come too late? If not, are the Four Constables and their exalted master skilled enough to take down this cunning killer, who lurks in familiar shadows? Also, the Four Great Houses of kung fu enter the fray. With whom will they side? Or, might their intentions be more sinister?
