The keen Moses Wine, thanks to the help of lawyer Spitzler manages to talk with two rioters serving life sentences and gets a name out of them: Oscar Procary Jr. Confusion increases when the investigator is contacted by Oscar Procary Senior, who asks him to find his son. The police, as well as some mysterious killers, start following poor Moses, who cannot make any connection between Procary, Eppis and Hawthorn. Lila gets killed.
