Storyline

Mannix is hired by successful heart surgeon Cameron McKenzie, whose young son was apparently kidnapped by someone who looked exactly like the doctor, driving a car that also looked exactly like the doctor's car. Mannix agrees to look into the kidnapping if the police will be notified once Mannix runs into a dead end. But then Dr. McKenzie confesses something he has held back: the kidnappers don't want a ransom -- they want McKenzie to let one of his patients die in exchange for the boy's life.

A surprisingly weak episode.
11 May 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show begins with an amazingly far-fetched event. A man wearing a rubber mask (just like in the studio's other hit show, "Mission: Impossible") kidnaps a kid. Why you don't know initially, but eventually you learn that they stole the doctor's kid in order to force the doctor to 'accidentally' lose a patient on the operating table!!

I have so far recently watched the first season and almost half the second season of "Mannix" and am very impressed by this detective show. The programs have been very well written and fresh--and exciting. However, I must say that of all these episodes, "Edge of the Knife" is among the very weakest. Part of the problem is the weird camera-work during the final chase scene, part of it is the uncharacteristically bad use of a double for Mannix in this same scene (it's so obviously NOT him) and part of it is because the plot seems weak and with a few holes. Worth seeing, perhaps,...but weak.
