Persuaded back into active service by his superiors, Nick Tellis finds himself walking the same dangerous streets that almost got him killed when he was an undercover narcotics cop. Now he's investigating the murder of a fellow officer - but is his volatile new partner, Lt. Henry Oak, entirely on the level?
Undoubtedly. Later on, when story takes over from character and mood, the film drops into mainstream mystery territory. But that’s a small price to pay for performances and direction of such a high standard.
