Storyline

Tim Kerry, a cop on the beat in Hell's Kitchen, welcomes his grown son Ritzy home after a two-year prison term. Ritzy's former friends and his ex-girl Julia join with Tim in hoping he'll go straight. But local gang leader Claire Morelli (the former boss's widow) knows of Ritzy's talents from other ex-cons, and makes him an offer hard to refuse. A chain of double-crosses seems to make tragedy inevitable... Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>
