Al Pennyback and his friends were instrumental in apprehending Chinese gangster Li Wei and putting him behind bars. With the help of his brother, Li Jiu Long, he escapes and comes back to Washington, DC seeking revenge. Li and his brother go on a killing spree while Al races against the clock to track them down. When they bomb the home of his friend, DC cop Buster Mayweather, endangering his family, Al gets angry, but when they kidnap Chinese-American lawyer Elizabeth Sung, who Al has befriended, he really gets steamed.
Al enlists the assistance of an enigmatic retired CIA agent, Carlton Raine to get inside the minds of the Li brothers, and using a high-tech gadget that Raine is testing for his former employers, corners them at an abandoned warehouse in Virginia. In a final confrontation, Al and Buster rescue Elizabeth and face down the two gangsters.
