A man delivers money to an unknown recipient in Belfast, in the process taking some of the cash for himself. As the recipients are counting the money in a country farm house they are attacked by uniformed gunmen. Soon afterwards Phil, the driver for the delivery, is kidnapped and killed. Later the delivery man, Colin, is murdered at a London swimming pool.

Harold Shand, a London gangster, is aspiring to become a legitimate businessman and is trying to form a partnership with Charlie, a boss of the American Mafia, with a plan to redevelop London Docklands, in association with local construction boss Councillor Harris. Shand’s world is suddenly destabilised by a series of bomb attacks on his property and murder of his associates, including his old friend Colin. He and his henchmen try to uncover his attackers’ identities by threatening corrupt police officers, informers, and other criminals, whilst simultaneously trying not to worry their visitors, fearing the Americans will abandon him if they think he’s not in full control. Shand’s girlfriend, Victoria, tells the Mafia representatives he is under attack from an unknown enemy, but assures them Shand is working to quickly resolve the crisis. She starts to suspect Shand’s right hand man, Jeff, knows more about who is behind the attacks than he claims.
