Sgt. Tom Duncan of the Kenport Police Department has just committed suicide in his home when he was shot dead and survived by his wife Bertha Duncan. Without a suicide letter, the hypothesis for suicide is his worsening health, which confirms Mrs. Duncan. The lead investigator in the case is Homicide Detective, Sgt. Dave Bannion, who comes to the conclusion based on initial evidence. However, Dave slowly infiltrates the information that suicide is not as clear as it appears on the surface. This trickle quickly becomes a stream as Dave realizes that the local mob led by Mike Lagana, Vince Stone, his right-hand man, is somehow involved. What makes it more difficult for Dave is that the police did little to stem Lagana's activities in the city, as Lagana probably has some of the police organization's people in his back pocket. Due to the pressure from above, Lt. Ted Wilks, Dave's immediate supervisor, several years before retirement, announces Dave's activities as Wilks does not want to jeopardize his pension. Dave's determination to ensure that those who gave the literal trigger for Duncan's death are brought to justice increases as the case against him and his family becomes more personal to his wife Katie and their young daughter Joyce. Dave has to decide how far he will advance into the territory of illegal activity in order to bring down Lagana, Stone and their henchmen. Another way for Dave is to get the support of an employee in his inner circle. This help could be done in the form of Stone's B-Girl Debby Marsh with a unique action from Stone.
