Synopsis

A Michael Winner Cold-War thriller pre-dating his 'Death Wish' series. Agent Cross (Burt Lancaster) is a CIA operative who is ordered to hire French government assassin Jean Laurier (Alain Delon) to kill an Arab terrorist. The job done, the two men return to their lives, but Cross's boss, McLeod, arrests Laurier as he did not finish the job; he was also supposed to kill Cross. Cross finds out he has a price on his head and flees to Vienna but when his wife is murdered he returns to the US intent on killing both McLeod and Laurier using whatever means he can.
