***SPOILERS*** NYPD police woman Casey Jones, Beverly Garland, goes undercover as the late Eva Harris's niece Francis in order to not only solve Mrs. Harris strange death, a hit & run, but the reason she was deliberately run down outside her import export warehouse on the Manhattan waterfront. It turns out that two of the people working for her Herb Carson, Arthur Batanides, and Carl Walton, John Cassavetes?, were using her business to run guns for Castro's rebels in Cuba or anyone else who was willing to pay top price for them. It was the manager of the late Eva's import export business the wetting in his pants Andrew Garcia, Frank Silvera, who had no idea of what was going on who was caught in the middle of this gun running operation.

Casey for her part has her cover blown early in the episode and worked over by Walton only to be rescued by her fellow NY police officers but as for Carson & Walton their still going on with their gun running operation even though the police as well as FBI already got wind of it. It's the weak link in the chain Andrew Garcia who's about to chicken out and blow the whistle on his two cop-workers who are in reality secretly planning to knock him off. That's when greed among the two, Carson & Walton, takes hold and does them both in before the cargo of guns ever leaves the port.

It was the gutless at first Andrew Garcia who put his fellow gun runners, which in fact he wanted no part off, on ice by blasting Carson who planned to ice him and get the full share of cash for his criminal gun running operation. That's after Carson whacked Walton before he was to whack him first feeling that he'll double cross him in order to get his share of the gunrunning profits. Garcia the only survivor of the trio was to spend the rest of his life behind bars but that was a far better deal then what those who planned to rub him out, Carson & Walton, ended up getting.
