Storyline

The Checkmate team has big trouble when Joe Farrell and his gang of hoods take them hostage at gunpoint. Farrell wants Don Corey to bring his estranged wife Jean and some stolen money he hid in her apartment to a boat where he intends skipping the country. If Don fails, both Jed and Dr. Hyatt, held hostage in their separate homes, will be killed. Farrell can't go for Jean himself, as rival gangsters are out after him; to complicate things even more, Farrell has a traitor in his gang trying to intercept Don and Jean who are desperately trying to bring the money to the appointed meeting in time to save Jed and Dr. Hyatt.

Checkmate held hostage
26 February 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

All of the Checkmate regulars at their various dwellings are held hostage in a very well thought out scheme. Rogue gangster Jack Warden wants Anthony George to go to Reno to both pick up Warden's former wife and to get $300,000.00 he's stashed there.

Warden's one mean man and he will not let go of Garland for reasons of ego, hubris, or simply just male dominance. She doesn't want to go back but she owes Checkmate for past favors.

In addition just like in the film Big Jake, when it's out there that George is carrying that kind of cash there are a lot of people who'd like to take it.

Of course Checkmate does get out of it, they're clever folks and it's nice to see them outwit clever criminals.
