Storyline

The wife of a wealthy jet-setter is accused of murdering a philandering playboy on her husband's yacht, and the wealthy man hires Joe Mannix to investigate the crime, hoping he will turn up evidence to exculpate his wife. Mannix finds that there is no shortage of suspects who might have wanted the murdered man dead -- including his own client and his client's daughter. But when another suspect is killed, and two hoods show up threatening Mannix to get off the case, Mannix realizes that he may be investigating more than just a murder among the idle rich.

Mannix hangs out with some obnoxious rich folks and gets bashed in the head...all in a days work.
2 December 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, there's a fancy-shmancy party going on aboard a HUGE yacht. Shots then ring out and the guests go running...and Ali Brumante is found with a gun in her hand and a body at her feet. Soon Mannix is brought in by the mega-wealthy Brumantes to look into the case. However, Mannix doesn't like being ordered around and is a bit hesitant to take the case. When he interviews Ali in jail, he's still not particularly eager to take the case because she isn't particularly nice and seems to feel that money talks...and that carries little weight with Mannix. Still, he does decide to investigate and finds the Brumante family less than cordial...yet they hired him! And, if it doesn't seem like it could get any worse, it does as baddies start bashing him over the head and taking shots at him. But as usual, our indestructible hero is apparently unfazed and un-brain damaged. Considering the dozens and dozens of times Joe Mannix is knocked out throughout the series, his brain should be tapioca! Can Joe sort it all out and figure out who did what in this episode?

This is a pretty normal episode despite Mannix working for the fourth richest man in America. It has the usual twists, turns, bonks on the head and the like. It's not a bad show in any way and the obnoxious rich folks angle made it a tad more interesting than usual...but not enough to make this a must-see. Just another typical "Mannix" outing in most every way and the indestructible detective once again saves the day and somehow survives.
