Synopsis for "Hell's Heat Wave: Part One"

Violence erupts between several ethnic gangs in New York City. During these turf wars, a master of one of the Tongs is thought to have committed suicide and his lover's finger has been found in a dead man's mouth. The Shadow believes that the randomness of these events are in fact a pattern of someone hiding their tracks... and wonders who's the criminal mastermind behind it all.
