Storyline

Frank Nitti decides to import a large amount of heroin - $2 million worth. Eliot Ness is soon onto him and arrests the delivery man, Mr. Yang from Shanghai, but he no longer has the goods and they have no reason to detain him. Ness and one of his men travel to San Francisco to see if they can determine how the goods were smuggled into the country and determine that it entered on a passenger cruiser and was then shipped by air to Chicago enclosed in a large globe. Meanwhile, one of Nitti's fellow gangsters, Larry Bass, has his own plans for the drugs and assembles his own team to break into the bank vault where Nitti is temporarily storing the globe.

Someone has the nerve to try to steal Nitti's heroin?!
27 March 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the show begins, Mr. Yang has just brought in a shipment of over a hundred pounds of heroin for Frank Nitti. And, as usual, Yang finds a way to bring the drugs past US Customs. For much of the beginning of the episode Ness is tracking down the path the drugs took and what sort of shipping methods they used.

At the same time, one of the mob bigwigs, Larry Bass (Barry Morse) is putting into effect a completely insane scheme....to tunnel into the bank vault holding Nitti's heroin in order to steal it!! His partner Whitey Gross (Philip Pine) is instrumental in the deal...but everyone else seems quite expendable. Is there any way he can get away with this without Nitti having him killed or Ness throwing him into prison?

This is a pretty good episode...especially the ending where Nitti tries to figure out WHO is the leak. Well worth seeing and pretty exciting stuff.
