***SPOILERS*** Spending a quiet evening at his pad in the Depertment of Justice Building in San Francisco with the recently widowed Karin Martin, Betsy Jones Moreland, Chief Inroside,Raymond Burr, senses that there's something very wrong with her. Doing a little bit of probing Ironside soon finds out that Karin is being threatened by some prank caller telling her that she's hasn't that long, four days to be exact, to live! what's more Karin is hearing all kinds of strange sounds coming out of nowhere that's driving her batty. Taking a keen interest in Karin's problems Chief Ironside checks out those close to her and finds out that her brother Avery Corman, Ray Danton, is planning a merger with his or the late Karin's husband Ross' pharmaceutical company Martin Labs with the Swiss likewise company Abrex! And it's Karin who claims to have unearth documents on Martin Labs latest wounder drug Anfedaseton that would prove dangerous to anyone's health who uses it. Information that Avery has been keeping from the FDA in order to get the drug on the market!

Ironside together with Officer Eve Whitfield, Barbara Anderson, check out all those who were tested with the drug and find out that it did wonders for them instead of getting them sick and causing them to kick off or die! What's even more disturbing is that the voices that Karin had been hearing are starting to get more and more active having her feel that she's in fact losing her mind. There's even an incident outside her home when running outside away from the strange and scary voices Karin's attacked by the house gardener, on his off hours, who's later found murdered by the police. Was this a plan to frame Karin for the gardener's murder in order to shut her up about about what she found out about the wonder drug Anfedaseton?

***SPOILERS*** Ironside soon got the drift to what was happening to Karin and who was behind it. Setting a trap with Karin unknowingly used as bait it didn't take long for those who are trying to drive Karin insane or in her grave to come out in the open. And when they did it was Chief Ironside and the SFPD who were right there, with guns and handcuffs in hand, waiting for them.There's was something very strange about this gardener who at first seemed to be working with those trying to get Karen either committed or killed. I can only assume that he was murdered to keep his mouth shut from revealing to the police who was behind this whole insane and crazy scheme.
