|'Angels of Death'
by Terence Feely
and Brian Clemens
When top agents drop down dead at the sight of a red and white maze design, Steed, Gambit and Purdey discover that nearly fifty other agents have died of natural causes over the last two years. The common link is that each of the agents once visited the same health farm. Working independently, Steed, Gambit and Purdey each arrive at the farm, where they uncover a plot by the owner, Coldstream, to disrupt the government by killing key personnel. Coldstream has been brainwashing the attendees by subjecting them to immense emotional anguish and mental stress, and then placing them in a giant maze; when the subject later sees a plan of the maze, the shock kills them. Purdey is caught while searching a room and is strapped to a traction machine, which will snap her spine; meanwhile Steed is locked in the maze, where the constantly-shifting walls threaten his sanity. Gambit breaks in and frees Purdey, and together they set off to rescue Steed, but discover that he has already overcome his captors!
