PULP Plot Summary

Craig Morrison, an insurance investigator, travels to the mountain town of Sternwood, Washington to find a missing colleague who was conducting policy work for The Stern Millworks Company, a large timber production operation currently being run by American mobsters Leo Benardi and Lance Mattocks.

Months earlier, The Stern Exports Seattle arm of the company came under examination by the F.B.I. for illegally shipping lumber to the Empire of Japan in violation of the U.S. embargo. The government probe caused a violent and acrimonious split between Lance Mattocks and Takashi Ito, his Japanese trade partner. Ito narrowly escaped arrest by fleeing to Japan.

Janet Chance, a newspaper reporter with The Seattle Register, arrives in Sternwood to interview Belinda Stern Mattocks, the Stern Company heiress and scandal-plagued socialite. Her unexpected return after roaming the globe for five years is a hot and exclusive story. Her future plans and relationship with separated husband, Lance Mattocks, are to be subjects of inquiry.

Ito clandestinely returns to the U.S. with a band of military commandos. He has a strategy to exact his revenge on Mattocks and Benardi and wrest control of the Stern Company holdings in the process.

Craig Morrison and Janet Chance accidentally meet in Sternwood as gang warfare erupts around them. The pair soon discover that they are also targets of both warring factions.
