Recruited by the DEA, Brent Thomas goes undercover to investigate an ex-army buddy, Pat Frankie, who runs a boxing gym but who the DEA suspects is a drug dealer. Brent becomes an instructor in Frankie's gym. Frankie thinks he has the making of a champion and arranges fights for him. Brent, to everyone's surprise, wins the fights, eventually having a shot at the championship. Unfortunately, he also falls in love with Maria, Frankie's daughter. Then, entering the dangerous world of drug dealers, Brent must fight with his gun and his wits as well as his fists. An action-packed conclusion forces Brent into a traumatic choice: either a lie that will bring him Maria's love and a shot at the boxing title, or the truth that will cost him everything.Two peeling, electric power wires led to the house from a distant pole. The front door sagged half open. There was a new 4X4 Jeep Cherokee being sun baked in the yard, but no other sign that the building was occupied. When Duval shut ... He peered in through the open window, then quickly returned to the car and got in.
