Synopsis

Paul Newman returns as the quick-witted detective he first played nine years before in Harper, but this time he’s in deep. Hired by an old flame to unravel a seemingly routine blackmail case, he’s so far down he may never come up for air, in this adaptation based on the novel by Ross MacDonald.
