Mobster Augie Viale is out to start a new and lucrative business in the Chicago area: slot machines. They're not illegal so Eliot Ness and the Untouchables can't do a great deal about them but they know they provide the Syndicate with income that can be used to finance other illegal ventures so they take every opportunity to put Viale out of business. Ness visits Frank Odine who has just been released from prison. Odine wants nothing to do with the rackets but Viale forces him into the business by threatening to tell his daughter, who thinks her father was a hero who died in World War I, about his life. When Viale orders Odine to kill Ness, he can think of only one way out of his predicament. Written by
