|'Dial A Deadly Number'
by Roger Marshall
Stock market investors are dropping dead from heart failure, causing consternation in the world of high finance. Steed and Mrs. Peel find that the only link is they have in common is a new business product called a 'bleep', a small pen-shaped mechanical device which informs them when their office needs them. While Steed investigates a merchant bank, Mrs. Peel investigates the company that makes the 'bleeps'. The trail leads to a strange inventor named Fitch, who has a keen interest in clocks and killing. Meanwhile, Steed has been given a special device of his own disguised as his watch, and it is about to give him a very loud alarm call…
