Storyline

Joe Mannix is hired by Ellen Barton, whose husband drowned while swimming toward the dock near the marina where they lived. She is convinced that her husband, a champion swimmer, could not have died accidentally, and that instead he was murdered. As he pursues the investigation, Mannix enlists help from Dave Wright, the marina's security officer, whose life he once saved when Wright was still a police officer. Written by aldanoli

Trivia

The set that is supposed to be the room of Robert Stoner (Byron Morrow) at the marina is the one that normally is used as Peggy's apartment (e.g. as shown in the premiere episode for this season, "Eagles Sometimes Can't Fly," or in the previous season's "Last Rites for Miss Emma"). See more »

A very interesting episode but one with also a few odd lapses.
3 November 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with a widow hiring Mannix to look into her husband's recent death. The death was ruled an accident and the authorities think he bashed his head while scuba diving and drowned. However, the man was a fantastic swimming and very, very seasoned diver so the wife, not surprisingly, doesn't buy this official account. To investigate, Mannix heads to the marina and hangs among the yacht club set. Fortunately, he has some help, as the head of security (Milton Selzer) is an old friend--and a man whose life Joe Mannix saved years ago.

Overall, this is a very good episode because the plot is extremely novel. However, while I'd like to score this one higher I can't because of a couple stupid little scenes. In one, Mannix is being attacked by a guy named Gordon (who has a gun) and Peggy just stands there doing NOTHING--a horrible cliché. Another time, a baddie captures Mannix but inexplicably doesn't kill him--planning on killing him a bit later! Such sloppy scenes just should have been written better
