Hell takes a holiday and a city block becomes a slaughterhouse when a gang of crooks takes the richest pickings ever got with civilian guns. And all that a tough little private detective, known as the Continental Op, has to do to get to the brains behind the deal is to stay alive and keep from tripping over butchered bodies while he follows a trail of corpses through San Francisco to a gray wall on which two words are written in blood.
