The Champions follow a tricky trail when tracking down the suppliers of tainted drugs.
Drug addicts are becoming the victims not only of their vice but the lethal effects of tainted dope which is being distributed in London.
But who is handling this poisonous consignment? Scotland Yard are baffled, and the Nemesis organisation is asked for help.
It befalls Sharron (ALEXANDRA BASTEDO) to tail an addict, Jane Purcell (KATE OMARA), who, desperate because her supplies have been cut off, allows Sharron, posing as a fellow addict, to trick her into revealing the name of her pusher.
Sharron buys some drugs from the man, Edwards (MICHAEL STANDING), planting a tiny transmitter bug on him which allows Craig (STUART DAMON) and Richard (WILLIAM GAUNT) to tail him to the Zoo, where he buys a bag of peanuts from a vendor (TOKE TOWNLEY).
A search of Edwards flat reveals littleexcept a bag of peanuts in the kitchen. The peanuts prove to be full of drugs. Now certain that they are on the right trail, Craig and Richard keep watch on the peanut vendors house and follow him to a garage where they notice that the petrol attendant, Sandra (EDINA RONAY), looks far too well dressed for her job. Craig makes her acquaintance, deliberately lets her think he is a policeman and is able, with his super-human hearing, to gauge the number she dials when she phones to warn her contact.
The number is passed on to Richard and Sharron, who get busy on tracing its owner. Meanwhile, Craig takes Sandra to a nightclub where she introduces him to Pelham (GUY ROLFE), who insists on their returning to his house for a drink. Once inside, Craig is led at gunpoint into the basement, which connects with a nearby Eastern Embassy.
An Embassy official and several servants are waiting and they attempt to torture Craig into revealing his true identity. But by this time, Richard and Sharron have traced his whereabouts and break into the underground room. The source of the tainted drugs has been traced at last....
