Description

Millionaire businessman Charlie Ravich is a survivor whose brutal experience as a POW in Vietnam has more than prepared him for the cut-throat world of global commerce. Now in his late fifties, with his family dying out, Charlie is about to make his greatest speculation yet. Christina, a voluptuous Ivy League drop-out whose affair with Rick Bocca, a member of a big-time truck-theft ring run by mobster Tony V, is mysteriously released from four years of seclusion in prison. Warned that Christina is being set up by Tony V, Rick begins a desperate search for her. But as their pasts catch up with them, a harrowing chain of betrayals is set in motion that leaves only one person with any hope of a future.
