A diamond necklace stolen. A fugitive an ocean apart. A detective without a single clue. Police inspector Bau (Sima Wah-lung) follows hot on the heels of the diamond thief (Patrick Tse Yin) to Hong Kong when the love for a terminally ill girl (Patsy Kar Ling) beckons the latter to amend his criminal past. Supplying both brawn and brains in an adventure of mystery and high-speed act ion, even spor t ing a smoking pipe to complete the trademark looks, Sima once named The Heart- Stealer as his favorite turn as the detective.
