(Some Spoilers) It's when freelance photographer Mike Kovac, Charles Bronson, gets an emergency phone call from Lisbon Portugal from his good friend and fellow WWII combat photographer Terry Ross, Norman Alden, that he knows deep in his gut that things aren't quite right! It's just then that someone broke into Terry's hotel-room at the Lisboa Hotel and blew Terry away!
Terry was about to explain to Mike about some very explosive negatives he was about to send to him that would expose a major industrial spy ring working of of Lisbon that he had infiltrated. Getting on the first plane to Lisbon Mike checks with the local police on the statutes of Terry and find out her was murdered less then 24 hours ago! It's outside the police station that Mike runs into Al Alviella, Mario Alcalde, who claims to know what happened to Terry and who was behind his murder; The guy known as "The Man", Frank DeKova, who's the biggest crime boss in town.
Not at first believing that Terry would be working for a hoodlum like "The Man" Mike later runs into Terry's wife of less then two weeks Rena, Chana Eden, who tells him that her late husband was in fact trying to get the goods on "The Man" and his organization but was discovered by one of his hoods who ended up whacking Terry before he could, with the incriminating negatives, make them public! It's later when Alviella presented Mike with evidence on Terry's involvement with "The Man" in a number of secret bank accounts that he has that Mike started to wonder if the Terry he knew all these years was the Terry that was a part of "The Man's" criminal organization!
***SPOILERS***As things turned Terry was careless but not stupid and documented all his evidence on "The Man", who in fact turned out to be someone else, by secretly photographing it! Including his own murder with a hidden camera planted in the wall in his hotel room! It's when Mike developed the murder photo that he realized that his as well as Rena's life was in danger in "The Man" being right there in the dark room when he developed it!
