Moretti's yacht docked at Torre Annunziata, and was met by a squad of polizia cars squarely in the gangster's pocket. Huntress looked on. "They're protecting Naples' biggest mobster? This country is totally corrupt." Huntress beat up on some cops with more silly trick crossbow bolts, so that she could sneak aboard the boat to eavesdrop.

"Crossbow at the Crossroads: Part Three" was by Paul Levitz, Marcus To and John Dell. It wasn't the exact same plot as #1 like #2 was, but was still very much like whole chunks of the video market for action movies in the heyday of VHS.
