A nightmare of vice and corruption stretching to the very heart of the Police force to the Cabinet. Tank (Ray Winstone) is an investigative reporter and jailbird, framed on scant evidence supplied by the London mob. Helen (Amanda Donohue) is the sensuous call-girl who offers Tank amunition and retribution. Malling battles to expose the corrupt figures behind the facade of the Moral Revival Campaign. Armed with vital information he needs, provided by Helen, Malling has 24 hours to secure the evidence which will finally expose the ring of murder, prostitution and blackmail around the Moral Revivalists. His enemies retaliation is swift and brutal, in the guise of Sir Robert Knights (Peter Wyndgarde) and his equally lethal lawyer, Dunboyne (Jason Connery). A series of hideous murders follow as the devil protects his own. Only Malling and Helen can halt the onslaught - but for how long and at what price?
