Plot / Synopsis
Crime boss, Alberto Lettieri is broken out of prison, but before he makes his escape, they nab another prisoner, the docile Giacomo Masoni, and take him along. Once out, Lettieri and his thugs snuff out a group of four unrelated individuals. Commissioner Questore learns that the four victims--Luigi Trentin, a transvestite; Maria Esposito, a hooker; Nestore Frangiapane a bar owner; Aldo Bettoia, a drug addict; all were informers instrumental in the capture of Alberto Lettieri. With such a dangerous and volatile criminal loose on the streets once more, the Commissioner is forced to reinstate Inspector Murri to the force. A hot tempered policeman, Murri has a personal connection to Lettieri and uses his excessive and violent methods to instill his brand of justice on the criminal element causing Fear In the City.
