Someone has set up an agency for contract killings in San Francisco, but the question is who ...

To find this out, Jerry Cotton (George Nader) and his red Jaguar go to San Francisco and hook up with his old friend, private eye Sam Parker (Herbert Stass) plus assistant Ria (Daniela Surina), and soon he comes up with a couple of leads, most notably one businessman named Carp (Kurt Jaggberg), whose former employee who wanted to testify against him in court, has been shot, and whose wife Linda (Grit Boettcher) desperately tries to get away from him. Soon enough, a killer, Davis (Gert Haucke) is after Linda, but is shot himself when he fails to kill her. She is shot later on, but not before giving Jerry another clue, a clue that leads to psychiatrist Saunders (Carl Lange), who obviously uses his practice to turn his mentally unstable patients into contract killers.

Now Jerry has all the pieces of the puzzle but one, he's still missing the head of the organisation. And thus he persuades his friend Sam Parker to set up a contract on Cotton himself ... and fortunately, Cotton can intercept his would-be killer when he's about to kill Ria and get him over to his side - so ultimately, cotton fakes his own death. However, Cotton's charade isn't working for too long, and ultimately, after a long chase plus shoot-out he can unmask the mastermind of the whole affair as being none other than his friend Sam Parker himself - and bring him to jsutice of course.


Lively entry into the Jerry Cotton series that might have numerous shortcomings - from the stupidly convoluted plot to the German location shoots not matching the establishing shots done in San Francisco -, but it's fast moving, full of action, and generally one of these films that are enjoyed the most when not taken too seriously. So yeah, it's fun.
