An explosive plot to kidnap a billionaire drug-lord set against the drug underground of New York, Miami, Washington, and the Caribbean. Carl Stegner (George Touliatos) is wanted by the US government on fraud, bribery and corruption charges. But before Stegner can be indicted, the government's star witness is murdered. Adele Tasca (Sophia Loren), the murdered man's widow, suggests Stegner's kidnap to the Justice Department. She recommends Jerry Fanon (James Coburn), her former lover and professional bounty hunter, to catch her husband's killer and bring him back to face justice. Fanon and Adele enlist the aid of Catlett (O J Simpson), a powerful, professional thief and together they embark on the deadly mission.
