France 1945. MPs, Sergeant Jack Reilly and his partner Sergeant Frank Contini, find themselves closing in on a gang of thieves who have been pilfering military goods for the black market. In the course of arresting the villains, Jack is forced to kill one of the criminals. This man happened to be one of two brothers, high ranking members of the Corse Unione, the French mafia. The surviving brother, Guy LeRouche, is tried and convicted with a sentence of death. However, during the trial LeRouche threatens to exact his revenge on Jack and Frank for his brother’s death. Years later, back in the States, Jack has left the army and opened his own one man PI agency. He receives a call from his old commanding officer alerting him that Guy LeRouche has escaped prison and is believed to be heading to the States. According to reports out of France, the Corse Unione has hooked up with the Sicilian mafia on their heroin traffic. The Unione controls most of the heroin trade out of Southeast Asia and the man representing them is LeRouche. Jack was to soon learn that the sins of the past always catch up to us as he confronts a vicious killer and the mafia.
