Mike is asked by a Las Vegas entertainer to come to Vegas. Mike refuses, he is then knocked out and dropped (literally) into Las Vegas. He is led to believe that the entertainer had him shanghaied, which the entertainer denies. Later the entertainer is blown up (literally) and someone has planted evidence that points to Mike. Mike then sets out to try and clear his name but everyone he goes to get information is killed and he is again the suspect. Can Mike find someone who can clear him and can he keep that person alive long enough to do so? Written by
John Calvin who portrayed Doctor Carl Durant in this television film previously had a guest appearance in "The New Mike Hammer" second season episode "Firestorm" as Pete Kingman, but that character remained alive in the episode because Kingman did not end up being a murder victim like Carl Durant did in "Murder Takes All".

Instead I rated it a 5 because of the loose ends. Lots of twists to the plot just as one would expect with Mike Hammer. But I like my endings tied up neatly and this film doesn't even explain why Hammer was parachuted into Vegas or why that was the only way to get him there.
