Banker Dyers (Karel Stepanek) and businessmen Cormick (Rudi Schmitt) and Johnson (Helmuth Rudolph) are blackmailed into paying 1 million Dollars, otherwise their respective sons or daughters will be kidnapped. Dyers however decides to turn to the FBI and its top agents Jerry Cotton (George Nader) and Phil Dekker (Heinz Weiss) - but despite the fact that Dyers' daughter Jean (Dagmar Lassander) is guarded by the police pretty much round the clock, she simply disappears from her own room and a few days later turns up dead. So when the kids of Cormick and Johnson disappear - and Phil Dekker with them -, they pay the kidnappers' demands - but that doesn't keep Jerry Cotton to be hot on the case, not in the least to save his best friend Phil.

Many chases, fistfights and shootouts later, after an investigation that led Jerry to the Salvation Army (!) and to Johnson's PR-man Long (Wolfgang Weiser) and forced him to fake his own death (though it eludes me exactly why), Jerry's trail leads him, of all people, to banker Dyers, as he has found out that dead Jean was only the banker's stepdaughter and heir to the family fortune, and above all that, he profited from the loans his friends had to get from his bank to pay up the ransom money. Plus, the only one who could have abducted Jean from her room and killed her right under the noses of the police was Dyers' son Brian (Helmut Förnbacher), who was in cahoots with his father ...

It all ends in another carchase when Brian takes off in a truck with Phil in the back, but Jerry and his secretary Susie (Franziska Bronnen) are in hot pursuit and ultimately save the day ...

 

Herbert Reinecker, who wrote this film, was one of the most prolific German screenwriters of crimemovies and -television of his time - but unfortunately he wasn't all that good a writer: His scripts were always full of far-fetched plottwists, way too surprising revelations and illogical conclusions to really work. On a good day, this could result in a thriller that's highly enjoyable for exactly these reasons. Unfortunately, he didn't write Der Mörderclub von Brooklyn on one of his better days, the plot is way too convoluted to stay believable, with way too many characters built up as suspects only to after a time being tossed away again, and with a rather unlikely solution at the end.

Having said that, it's not that the film is a total desaster - it's just not one of the better Jerry Cotton films.
