A modern hardboiled adventure written by Ray Bradbury, the tale of a killer who suffers from delusions of grandure.
Guns blaze, but thanks to a get away car driven by a tough dame, the green gunman makes his break to safety. Together, she becomes the brains of their outfit, and he takes care of the heavy lifting. Johnny gets a quick education, then has the chance to take over the infamous Ricky Wolfe gang.
The world doesn’t know that the real Ricky Wolfe is dead, and Johnny’s big test is about to come as he tries to fool the gang. The tough guys don’t go for it, but Johnny proves he can handle the hardened killers. He takes charge, but Julie backs away from him when he no longer takes her advice. Is she jealous that he isn’t taking orders from her anymore? Or is there some real danger awaiting Johnny if he ignores what she has to say?
Johnny is heading down the same path that Julie has seen Ricky go down and come up a loser. Can she stop him from coming to the same bad end? Let’s just say that when the FBI moves in, crime proves that it does not pay.
