Her boss (Eddie Egan) is also not particularly pleased with the methods with which in particular Doyle practices his profession.

They quickly learn that a major French dealer named Alain Charnier (Fernando Rey) is in New York. Charnier has persuaded French television star Devereau (Frédéric de Pasquale) to hide 60 kilos of high-quality heroin in his car to sell it via Boca to gangster boss Weinstock (Harold Gary).

The hunt begins...
