The D.A.'s assistant with a mad on, and hot on a private war when the disappearance of a half pint bookie gets under his skin. Distrusting his chief, framed in silks and satins when a babe is killed and her body kidnapped, Mike Macauley is strictly from a fall guy as he signs up with the hoods to get the in on the fix, the fixers and Mr. Fix. Hoodlums, subhumans and gambling add up to a distasteful dish.
