"A man, a van and a dog, you'd think they'd be easy found."
Professional hitman, Doc Terence, has been given an impossible contract. Half of the Organisation wants him to find and kill disgraced politician Paul Bradley. But the other half, led by Doc's brother, Jimmy, insist on interrogating the man first. Bradley proves elusive and, as frustrations build, the body count mounts.
Then there's the women in Doc's life: his runaway wife, and a defiant Connie who conceals information about Bradley. Really, to protect his professional integrity, Doc should kill both women. However, Doc has never yet hit a woman let alone murdered one.
Unaware of the threat to his life, Bradley takes a job in greyhound kennels where he trains his dog for a big race. Everyone comes together the night of the Rosebowl final, and there are enemies out there that Doc doesn't know about.
But just in case you think he's a pushover. "Doc" is short for "Docker" and what he docks you wouldn't like.
