Tom Farnon, ultimate patsy...
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

When the show begins, a man overhears his wife's conversation with her lover over the phone. Not surprisingly, he shows up to the place where the lovers are to meet. However, he finds his wife dead and the boat on which they were to meet explodes. Obviously he's been setup--and the only witnesses see him not the guy who ran away shortly before he exited the boat. Tom Farnon is obviously some patsy--but who is going to believe it? Yep--Mannix! The case just seems too cut and dry--like a setup. I could say more but the bottom line is that it's up to you to see this one unfold yourself. It's very well written, has some excellent twists and doesn't rely on "Mannix" clichés such as seeing Joe bashed over the head or run off the road! Well done and very interesting.
