Summary
After a two-year hiatus, Mike Davis, returns to the same African city where he was tortured and left for dead at the hands of a sadistic police commandant. Originally innocent of all charges, Davis is back to claim the diamonds he had supposedly stolen two years ago. He enlists the help of an alcoholic stranger, and the doctor who had helped him get his health back. The diamond syndicate head recruits a nightclub temptress to seduce and betray Davis as an alternate to brute force
