In the second of our Gloria Grahame films, tough cop Dave Bannion (Glenn Ford) takes on a politically powerful crime syndicate.

Bannion is tipped off after a colleague's suicide and his fellow officers' suspicious silence lead him to believe that they are on the gangsters' payroll.

When a bomb meant for him kills his wife instead, Bannion becomes a furious force of vengeance and justice, aided along the way by the gangster's spurned girlfriend Debbie (Grahame). As Bannion and Debbie fall further and further into the Gangland's insidious and brutal trap, they must use any means necessary (including murder) to get to the truth.

This is a taut and gripping, vintage police thriller.
