NIGHT OF THE HORNS
Lawyer Robert Race has always been a straight-arrow guy, taking on underdog cases against all odds. He believes in his client’s innocence. But one night his confidence is shattered when racketeer Kresnik forces him to collect a suitcase at the docks, and Race stumbles into a world he didn’t know existed. He runs into his old flame, Ginny, who for some reason now despises him. He is confronted by his neighbor Paul Taylor’s wife, Laura, who confesses that her husband has been having an affair with Race’s wife, Eve, right under his nose. His protégé, Tony Fontaine, has been acting strange, and even his father-in-law, Sam Alford, taunts Race that he has been living with his head in the sand. Tonight Race learns a lot about his life. But his trip to the docks is only the beginning. Soon his life is completely turned upside down—because tonight he finds himself on the lam for murder!
John Molson is an expatriate American living in France where he is currently bodyguard to an old millionaire named Craddock. Life is good. He’s got a new girl named Julie. What does it matter that she keeps warning him about her brother, while spending the evening hovering over that suave bastard, Roger Lascelles? If it isn’t love, it’s the next best thing. But Molson’s reverie is shattered when Craddock announces they are driving down to Spain where there’s a deal to be finalized involving some lucrative mining rights. No sooner do they arrive but Craddock is murdered, Molson is framed, and every unsavory character in town is after him—Colonel Parker, dangerous double-crosser; Chivas, Craddock’s rival; Vidal, sadistic chief of police, Luiz Hernandez, disgraced bullfighter—and most dangerous of all, sweet Louise, who holds the key to the whole deal!
