A dirty cop finds his greed and desire awakened when he is assigned by the Mob to murder a sexy Mafia hitwoman.
Jack Grimaldi, one of New York's "finest," is working on the Organized Task Force. He's determined to meet his ship when it comes in but in the meantime he'll settle for fat tips from the mob. Grimaldi -- as duplicitous in his love-life as he is in his profession -- leaves his faithful but impatient wife at home while he spends "quality-time" with his mistress Sheri. But everything changes when he meets sultry Russian mobstress Mona Demarkov -- recently apprehended for killing Federal agents and government witnesses. When Mona's made Grimaldi's responsibility, the beautiful seductress places him in some compromising positions.
