The city is in fear of the `Necktie Killer', who rapes and kills young women. Chief Inspector Oxford begins to suspect Richard Blaney, a jobless ex-RAF officer who drinks too much and has a stormy relationship with his ex-wife Brenda and his girlfriend Babs Milligan. His best friend, fruit-seller Bob Rusk, tries to calm Blaney down but as the evidence against him grows, Oxford is sure he's got the right man.
