Mike believes the man who has come to get him is the cabbie scheduled to drive him to the Institute for the Blind where he has been requested to make a presentation. In reality, the man is one of three people, two men and a woman, who kidnap him. Drugging him with a hallucinogen, they leave him to die on an abandoned cargo ship in dock.

Fifteen hours later, Mike escapes and is able to make his way home.

Putting the pieces back together
6 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mike Longstreet is given a hallucination inducing drug and then dumped on a salvage ship. The culprits are sure he will fall to his death trying to get out of the ship. But he doesn't and slowly and painfully he recovers from the effects of the drug. Both he and Paige are convinced that there is a connection between his kidnapping and a trial that Mike is scheduled to testify at. As the drug wears off, Mike is able to remember some valuable clues to his drugging and kidnapping and he and his seeing eye dog, Pax, corner the lead bad guy. Tyne Daly, in a part ten years prior to her stint on the Cagney and Lacey show, does a good job as the frightened and weak nurse, Marcella. And seeing Wesley Lau as a Defense Attorney was cool. For me, he'll always be Lt. Andy Anderson on the Perry Mason show. But the real kudos go to James Franciscus. He does a wonderful job depicting Longstreet's grappling with the effects of the drug and it's aftermath.
