Exotic ship-dwelling Juanita assigns her henchman Gomez to find an assassin and kill her ex-lover by slipping him a dose of rare and potent cobra venom. Gomez chooses a near-sighted female mud wrestler named Cindy who sneaks into the wrong apartment and ends up poisoning Sledge instead. Sledge has only a few hours to live unless the nearly-nonexistent antidote can be located, but he is determined to crack the case. He and Dori locate the myopic Cindy and learn of the mistake. They get their first real lead when Sledge's flirtatious landlady identifies Gomez as the man who stole her pass-key. Under duress, Gomez tells Sledge and Dori where to find the treacherous Juanita. A shipboard confrontation with her finds Sledge wrestling with a large boa constrictor in a desperation attempt to obtain the antidote in the last few minutes before the poison takes its final, fatal effect.
Did You Know?
A guy gave me one hundred dollars and a pass-key and told me to go to apartment number 13 and put knockout drops in...
Wait a minute, wait a minute. Apartment 13? I live in apartment 12!
Oh, Hammer, the poison wasn't for you!
Oh, this is great. Now when I die, my NEIGHBOR'S life will flash in front of my eyes!
