The Missing Book
28 February 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Thomas Banacek(George Peppard) is called in on a case involving a valuable book inside a high security display case further protected by a quickly closing door that is still stolen, despite the sophisticated alarm system! It is called the Book Of Hours that is owned by an extremely wealthy, powerful, ruthless, yet crippled man named Walter Tyson(played by David Wayne) who wants it returned at any cost, as it belonged to his beloved late wife, though Tyson himself isn't beloved, especially by his employees(like Stella Stevens)... Ted Cassidy costars. Typical entry is still good, especially Wayne, with a solution that may seem obvious only in retrospect.
