In Contract a trio of city dealers’ scheme to siphon off money from their company’s accounts. The con is suspected by ringleader Simon Talbot’s boss so he and his friends hire ageing hitman Terry Cameron to do away with him.
Cameron requires payment only on completion of the job, but when the boss publicly dies of a heart attack the dealers decide there is no need to pay the hitman. Cameron then starts killing the dealers one-by-one as a penalty for non-payment.
Starring Adam Faith in his final TV role completed shortly before his death; and TV Presenter Jamie Theakston in an acting role.
