Storyline: When Electronics Incorporated, the commerical colossus that employed him, pulled Keith Kirkland back from New York to Sydney, he thought it was trouble. The trouble came in two parts...the television receiver that wouldn't and Jason Sloan, the new boss, who wanted a fall-guy and selected Keith for the job. He was the expert who had to sell the new TV receiver to a disbelieving public. He had a gimmick... and, if it failed, Keith's head wouldn't be the one to roll...he had a fall-guy too. But there were distractions along the way...distractions like Peggy Bush, the blonde secretary he found installed in his office...the girl who believed that nothing was too personal for a personal secretary...particularly when it helped her career. And there was the beautiful Lavinia...Jason's wife...who had two loves and neither of them was Jason...
Keith thought he'd reached the climax when he had to choose between his career and his best friend...but his troubles had only started...troubles that were to end in stark tragedy and sudden death... .
