Synopsis
During a shootout with the FBI, a Nazi spy is killed and buried in a secret grave. Another Nazi spy kidnaps the FBI agent who shot him and tortures him to death attempting to learn the location of the grave. They are able to divert Torch and Toro long enough to bring the body back to their hideout where they inject it with a chemical which reveals a message on its back. Torch and Toro track them back to the hideout and make sure that the message containing details of an Allied shipping convoy does not get into enemy hands.
