Storyline

Mannix travels to San Francisco to wind up a case. At the airport he spots old flame Jan Holloway, who stood him up some time before. She tells Joe she is really married to a man named Carter Elliott. Several hoods then hustle Mannix away, apparently because he spoke to her -- leading him into a deepening mystery involving $14 million and Mrs. Elliott's apparent death shortly thereafter.

I liked it more than the other guy, but he mostly thinks what I think about this one.
23 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I loved seeing the San Francisco locale for this episode and it really added to the ambiance of the show. However, apart from that the story seemed to have a lot of plot holes.

When the show begins, Mannix is in the San Francisco airport. He sees a lady who he knows from LA and is surprised...as he hasn't seen her since she stood him up on a date a couple months earlier (and NOBODY does that to Joe!). He's confused and she's not especially happy to see him and then tells him she thinks men are following her. Soon a couple of the guys take Mannix to an old fort (the Presidio, I think). There they work him over in front of their boss but eventually Mannix is able to escape before they kill him.

Joe goes to the police and the detective's reaction is curious indeed. He acts much like Mannix is lying and wasting his time when he tells them about being kidnapped...and this makes no sense at all. Nor does it make much sense later in the show then this same detective and his partner capture two of these same guys and then just let them run away!!! Huh?!?! This never is explained...nor are things like people somehow knowing where Mannix will be from one scene to the next. Yes, it IS sloppy. Fortunately, the story itself isn't too bad and at least it's entertaining.
