Cast & Crew
During the gang robbery of an armored truck carrying a factory payroll, the driver of the getaway car is killed. His wife, Jackie Parker, vows to avenge her husband's death and, upon learning that Dennis Pearson, a wages clerk at the factory, was the thieves' inside man, begins showering him with anonymous letters and telephone calls. Pearson's greedy wife, Katie, has meanwhile fallen in love with the gang's leader, Johnny Mellors. With pressure coming at them from all sides, the crooks start quarreling among themselves, and Johnny is forced to kill two of his cohorts. After Katie has tried to doublecross him, he decides to flee the country, but he is confronted by Jackie Parker as he boards a cruiser. When the suitcase containing the payroll money slips overboard, Johnny dives in after it and is killed by a speeding motorboat as the money floats out to sea.
