Michael infiltrates a maximum security prison to spring a convict named Peter McCord, who is terrified to leave the big house, and even turns down his parole. Police investigator Philip Hunt however, wants him released so he can draw out a former mob boss, Eric Fenton, who has a personal vendetta against McCord. Fenton threatens to explode a powerful bomb hidden somewhere in the city if McCord is not handed over, but McCord manages to get away when Hunt's agents drop him off for Fenton's thugs.

Michael goes looking for McCord and his only lead is his estranged daughter, Lisa McCord, who refuses to even speak to her father believing he murdered her mother Rachel. Once McCord is found, he confronts Lisa and claims his innocence saying Fenton murdered Rachel, who had also been Fenton's lover for a time before the mobster was sent to prison. By the time Fenton was released, he found Rachel and McCord had married and was furious. Now McCord must prove himself to his daughter and help Michael bring Fenton down and find the bomb with only minutes left before detonation.
