The town of Ford is quickly becoming the main junction in the trafficking of illegal liquor.

The town of Ford, the Border Cities’ knot of factories, machine shops, and depots wedged between respectable Walkerville and residential Riverside, is quickly becoming the main junction in the trafficking of illegal liquor. When Jack McCloskey tries to regain his lost bootlegging territory, he and his gang are met with some resistance from both labour and management.

Meanwhile Detective Campbell and Dr. Laforet are trying to figure out if recent deaths in Ford are gang-related or industrial sabotage, and Pearl Shipley, entertainment manager at McCloskey’s nightclub, finds out the hard way that a few of the girls in her chorus line have been putting in overtime at a certain bawdy house downtown.

Finally, McCloskey’s and Vera Maude’s honeymoon in Niagara Falls is cut short after being twice postponed when a figure from his past resurfaces and he is called back to the Border Cities.
