Johnny Dollar finds himself on the track of a missing persons report, and his insurance company is worried they may have to pay out to the sister of Michelle March if it turns out that she’s dead. Johnny finds himself in Boston, and at the scene of a murder. His credentials pull some weight, and the cops let him continue his investigation.
It doesn’t take long and Johnny is in a deep crack between two rival gangs. Are the cops just setting him up to take a fall, or do their dirty work for them? After fighting his way clear, Johnny finds Michelle, who is in even deeper between the cogs of gangland rivalry. Both sides want her, and want her dead.
Once Johnny finds her, Michelle agrees to be bait for a trap. The well orchestrated event goes down, but as in real life, things begin to go wrong fast. Will Johnny survive when the two gang leaders face off? Will he be stuck in the middle with Michelle? And where is that police back up that was supposed to be there?
