|'Brought to Book'
by Brian Clemens
In order to bring Ronnie Vance to justice, Steed convinces Doctor Keel to infiltrate the drug-dealer‘s gang while he joins that of a rival. Steed then arranges for a police raid, in order to convince Vance that Keel is crooked. Keel discovers that Vance and his brother are to be murdered by a member of the rival gang, but when he tells Steed, it leads Vance to realise that there are traitors in both gangs. He sends one of his thugs, Spicer, to kill Steed, but the heavy is captured and held captive by Keel, who threatens him with a deadly injection from a hypodermic needle. Unknown to Spicer, Keel is bluffing, and when the police arrive, he confesses to the murder of Keel's fiancée Peggy. Pleased with how they have worked together on the case, Steed enlists Keel as his permanent partner.
