A package containing heroin is mistakenly delivered to the office of Doctor David Keel, and is unwittingly received by Keel’s fiancée, Peggy. But when the drug-dealer, Ronnie Vance, discovers the error, Peggy is murdered, and the police are unable to solve the case. Keel vows to avenge Peggy’s death, and uncovers the address of the doctor's office that should have received the drugs. Here he encounters a mysterious spy named John Steed; the two team up and set a trap for Vance, but the drug-dealer manages to escape just as the police close in on him…
