Storyline

Corey Boone, a private detective and a mentor to Joe Mannix, dies after being thrown from the window of a penthouse. Suspicion falls on the owner of the penthouse, a shady attorney named Charles Egan, who claims he was out driving around when Boone was killed. His one possible alibi is a young woman with whom he claims to have had a brief encounter in a remote area at the time of Boone's death. But then Egan, who has been charged with Boone's murder, surprises Mannix by asking him to find the missing witness. Written by aldanoli

Unusual...and I appreciate that.

This show begins with two guys fighting it out in an apartment. The loser of the fight is the serious loser when the other guy then tosses him through the window--landing many floors below to his death. It turns out the dead guy was a private detective and mentor to Joe Mannix and he's determined to find the guilty party. The evidence SEEMS to point to a guy with a shady past, but he might just be innocent--and the guy then hires Mannix to help him locate his alibi.

When the show begins, you might notice that this apartment has been used in several other "Mannix" episodes--including one where a girl was tossed out the OPEN window to her death (talk about a cursed apartment!). That aside, the show was novel and offered several nice twists, lots of action and a nice twist ending--and the final scene with Lt. Tobias (Robert Reed) is priceless! Well worth your time.
