Prostitution, dope, gambling, and murder! As a town, St. Cecilia was anything but saintly-prostitution, dope, gambling, the works. Matt Rudd of the Vice Squad had the lurid inside story. But he was helpless as long as crooked politicos like Nick Bartkowiak and his right-hand goon, Little Artie Nowack, kept the Police Commissioner under their thumb. Then the strangling of one of Little Artie's call girls raised a few eyebrows, especially Rudd's. And when his questions brought him face-to-face with a gun, a five-gallon bucket and a sack of plaster of Paris, even the cowering Commissioner had to face facts-shoot to kill! All-out war on the underworld!
