The one handed criminal known as Hook learned how to make explosives in the military (which is likely how he may have lost a hand). After leaving the military he would start up a criminal career and form his own gang. This gang would be hired by Mr. Martin, a manager Stacey Cleaners Inc. a successful cleaning business. Hook and his men would terrorize the businesses operations to make it look as though the competition was using dirty tactics to intimidate the owners of Stacey Cleaners. In reality, this was all a cover to allow Mr. Martin to throw off any connection in the explosion that killed Mr. Brown, the co-owner of Stacey Cleaners due to the fact that Brown refused to make him a third partner of the company.

Hook and his men would run afoul of the detective known as the Ferret who would go after the crooks on two occasions. On the second such, Hook would knock the Ferret out and take him back to his apartment. Hook would build a crude bomb to kill the detective, however the Ferret would escape and capture Hook and his men, as well as expose Mr. Martin as the mastermind behind the entire plot.
