Stanley Baker is chief protagonist, once top agent of Britain’s hush-hush spy organization but now regarded as slipped by his chief (Donald Pleasence), who in a final assignment gives him a chance to redeem himself on the scientist caper.

Never exactly explained is the reason for the desperate hunt of the scientist. Script by James Mitchell [from a novel by James Munro] is sufficiently exciting, however, and direction by Peter Collinson so realistic, that interest never lags.
