A maverick computer genius named Bobby Quinn is gunned down by a sniper while playing golf with his employer, Lawrence Martin, the head of a large conglomerate. Martin hires Mannix to find the plans for a revolutionary computer that Quinn designed that will be the size of a briefcase. What Martin doesn't tell Mannix is that he knows Quinn also left behind a letter with the plans that has damaging information against Martin -- and that Martin has taken steps to ensure that Mannix will never read the letter even if he locates the plans.

The boom mic is visible in two scenes, reflected in the front windshield of Mannix' convertible - once when he and Sharon Carter (Melodie Johnson) are entering the car as they leave the bank, and then just as they finish their conversation with the sheriff on the roadside after he stops them for speeding/reckless driving.

Wouldn't it have just been easier to do this without Mannix's help?
27 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this show begins, you see two businessmen playing golf and doing some sort of negotiation. Suddenly, a shot rings out--killing one of the men. At the funeral, Mannix shows up and talks to the man who was not shot during the golf game. It seems that the dead man had been working for him and had stolen some plans for a briefcase-size computer. The man had been extorting money out of the company for the plans and now that he's dead, the company is desperate to find the hidden instructions for the computer. Taking what little evidence he has, Mannix is able to piece together the dead man's secret life. The problem is, the same guy who killed the thief is also following Mannix--presumably to kill him once he locates the secret plans.

There was only one thing I didn't like about this episode. During the big fight near the end, Mannix is able to knock the rifle out of the killer's hands--and the killer runs. NEITHER guy tries to pick up the rifle!! Duh...pick it up and shoot him!!
