Storyline

Tip Ellis, a fellow private investigator and friend of Joe Mannix, is murdered while looking into a case of industrial espionage in Fresno. Mannix travels to Fresno to pay his respects, and also to look into the case his late friend was handling. In the meantime, a letter postmarked from Fresno arrives at Mannix' office -- possibly an effort by Tip Ellis to pass along information about the case to Mannix. That letter begins to take on great importance when someone takes extraordinary measures to steal the letter from Mannix' safe before he can read it. Written by aldanoli

While the hypnosis angle is a bit strange, it's a very solid episode.
30 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, a guy enters his office--only to hear someone in the other room rustling through things. Instead of confronting the person, he quickly addresses and envelope and drops something in the mail to Mannix. Only moments later, two more folks break in and kill the guy. You then learn that the dead man was a private eye--and Mannix is determined to figure out who did it. What follows is an interesting episode that has a lot of nice twists. And, for a change, no one beats up Mannix nor is he shot at--though a couple guys NEARLY brain him or shoot him. All in all, a bit better than average--even though the show features an odd twist--a doctor who not only makes housecalls but hypnotizes Peggy by giving her some sort of truth serum in order to find out what happened to the letter!
