Notorious landlord Danny Perlmann, a Polish refugee, is taking full advantage of others' reluctance to rent to the immigrants - or to prostitutes - and is making a fortune off the high rents he charges. Caught in the middle of this war over rents and turf is Irene, a young runaway on the verge of going on the game. When Perlmann's rent collector is murdered, Stratton is called to investigate
