The Stone Killer is an urban crime action film that was written by Gerald Wilson, based upon John Gardner's book, A Complete State of Death. The movie was produced and directed by Michael Winner and features Charles Bronson, Martin Balsam, Jack Colvin, Paul Koslo and Norman Fell. The movie follows a present day Mafia boss (played by Martin Balsam) who is out to avenge the murders of his Mafia cohorts from way back in 1931. Known as the Night of Sicilian Vespers, the event marked a nation wide attack against all of the prominent Jewish and Italian syndicate dons. The effort used teams made up of Vietnam vets rather than Mafia hit men. Lou Torrey (played by Charles Bronson) is a hard-boiled and very independent detective who happens to come across the murderous plot when an old time and former hit man gets murdered under conditions that make it very clear that an inside job has taken place. Obviously the Mafia henchmen and hit men had something to do with the spate of murders. Lou begins his own very unconventional investigation, much to the chagrin of everyone involved. He meets with everyone involved, some against their will. The Mafia is out to get him since they do not want any of the details revealed. However, very slowly Lou is able to uncover the many intricate clues that finally point out a plot that in most circumstances would be hard to execute. But because the Mafia is involved, anything is possible. Lou is forced to resign from the New York Police Department due to the corruption and controversy surrounding his accidental shooting of a teenager, despite the fact that he was armed. He faces other complications after being hired by the Los Angeles Police Department. He is subsequently scrutinized once more after he runs over an unfortunate suspect who took aim and fired shots at him.
