It's Boston in the early 1960's, and the police are baffled by a series of sickening murders. Detective John Marsden believes that there is more than one killer at large, but his superiors disagree and are keen to quickly have someone arrested and the case closed.

Albert De Salvo is the sharp-witted, small-time criminal who finds himself a suspect in the strangler cases that are wreaking havoc in Boston. After an unrelated arrest, De Salvo becomes cellmates with the manipulative Frank Asarian, who knows a lot more about the murders than he reveals…

Asarian concocts a plan that will see the duo gain notoriety from the killings and guide them to the reward money promised by the police to anyone who can lead them to the killer. DeSalvo has never killed anyone, but as he expects a lengthy jail sentence anyway, what difference does it make if people think he is the strangler?
