Joe Mannix is confronted by Harry Bennett, with whom Mannix served in Korea and who was later court-martialed, on testimony from Mannix, for giving information to his captors while a prisoner of war. Bennett claims that he is going to put Mannix through the same ordeal he faced at the hands of the North Koreans, and gives Mannix a name that Bennett claims Mannix will be unable to hold back once he becomes a captive. Then Bennett's threats seem to come true when Mannix is offered a sizable sum of money for the name of an informant within an underworld organization - and is threatened with much worse if he refuses.
