Cheapie little police procedural that works. A girls is found in an abandoned car in NYC's Central Park murdered by a shotgun blast. All the cops have to go on is the evidence they collect from the car and the tattoo on the girls arm.  What it is doing on a Film Noir list is debatable, its not stylistic or dark, save for a few chase scenes in the hospital morgue and in a tenement basement good enough for Shelby's book I guess.

Walter Kinsella and John Miles play the two detectives from homicide on the case and we follow them as they track down the killer.

Some great seedy location shots of Lower Manhattan Tattoo Parlors and the area around the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
