Fish - a local staple for centuries - has lately been making fishermen sick. Four investigators have disappeared looking into the Swamp Lake area for answers. Commissioner Wah asks Dr. Quest to look into the matter for them. Soon after agreeing to this, an assassination attempt on the Quest party is made and narrowly averted. The Doctor finds the fish heavily contaminated by a lethal toxin obtained from rocket fuel. While he and Race begin an airborne survey of the swamp area, Jonny, Hadji and Bandit are kidnapped. A traitor at Police Headquarter is found responsible. Now, Race and Benton must venture determinedly but silently into the swamps where "the trees have eyes" in order to rescue the boys and Bandit.

Did You Know?
When Race and Dr. Quest (in their helicopter) tail Lt. Singh (in his convertible), one shot has the helicopter flying after the car down the city street between the buildings at the second story level. Not only is that dangerous, improper and possibly illegal, it in no way can be considered a discreet way to follow anyone (yet Race and Benton are surprised when Lt. Singh spots them following him).

How 'bout a little more speed, Race.

Sorry, Doctor. This electric job's built for silence, not speed.
