When sibling streetkids pickpocket an address book everyone from politicians to the police tunnel after them in a cat and mouse chase with deadly consequences.
In a downtown theater district, a high class call girl is murdered for an address book which contain the names of her high profile clientele -- a document she has been using for blackmail. Andy, a young street urchin accidentally pickpockets the book from the murderer and takes off with it, not realizing this has made her, and her pickpocket brother, the killer's next targets.
Fraser, meanwhile is dropping off his new boss, the attractive but prickly Inspector Meg Thatcher, for an evening at the theater. Andy manages to steal Thatcher's brooch, a family heirloom, and the ensuing chase leaves an empty handed Fraser questioning a dead end alley which on further inspection harbors a labyrinthine maze of underground tunnels.
When the murderer, a Senator's handler, almost kills Andy in his attempt to retrieve the book, both her brother Sid and Fraser are alerted to the fact that something larger is at hand. Untrusting of people, the siblings refuse any help offered to them until Andy is taken hostage.
In return for the brooch, Fraser and Ray devise a plan for Sid to entrap the murderer. Sid is caught in the process but the ensuing chase is quickly ended when Fraser appears from the underground labyrinth. Fraser returns the brooch to the sergeant but Sid and Andy have once again disappeared into the underground city that is their home.
The tension between Fraser and Thatcher heats up and she decides that it may prove more interesting to keep this cleft-chin hero around than fire him.
