After taking part in the robbery of a large shipment of cash being transferred by helicopter on deserted Alcatraz, a man known as Walker is shot and left for dead by his partner Mal Reese, who then runs off with Walker's faithless wife, Lynne. Two years later, while on a guided tour around the island, Walker is stopped by a stranger, Yost, who offers to help him recover his share of the money by leading him to both Lynne and the criminal organization to which Reese now belongs. After Lynne has killed herself in despair, Walker takes up with her sister, Chris, who helps get him into Reese's heavily-guarded penthouse. As Walker threatens him, Reese plunges from a terrace to his death. Still determined to get his money, Walker continues to hunt down other members of the organization in Los Angeles. After two of them, Carter and car dealer Stegman, die in a trap intended for him, Walker makes his way to the combine's second-in-command, Brewster. Greedy to take over the number one spot in the organization, Brewster proposes that Walker outwit the top man, Fairfax, by pulling a hijack job similar to the previous one at Alcatraz. Walker accompanies Brewster to Fort Point, San Francisco, where the cash transfer is to take place. As Brewster picks up the packet of money, a shot rings out and he falls dead. Then Yost--who is actually Fairfax--appears to acknowledge Walker's unwitting assistance in eliminating those organization men who were a threat to his power. After offering Walker a job, Fairfax points to the packet of money and tells him to come and take it. Standing in the darkness, Walker considers the proposition for a moment and then disappears into the shadows.
