Storyline

Mannix goes to what he believes is a meeting with a new client, but is ambushed by a gunman who accuses him of working for Bruno Raphael, a former crime boss now exiled from the United States. While trying to figure out why someone thinks he is working for Raphael, Mannix meets with Raphael's granddaughter and her husband, who tell Mannix that someone has been shadowing them. Mannix soon learns that Raphael has indeed returned to the United States - and that he is caught between Raphael and his successor mobsters, any of whom might have a motive to kill Mannix.

Pretty good...but the ending seemed stupid.
27 April 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"One Step to Midnight" was a decent episode...up until the ending. As for the ending, it left a lot to be desired.

When the show begins, Mannix is called to a meeting--a meeting that turns out not only to be fake but someone is there waiting for him. The man who supposedly called Mannix MIGHT have been a famous gangster (Harold Gould) but Mannix is not only unwilling to work for the guy but no one knows exactly where he is. Soon, the gangster's son is murdered and the granddaughter of the creep might be next--so Mannix comes to offer his help.

The mystery and action in this one is pretty good. Plus, by the end Mannix's guess as to who is behind all this isn't such a big leap-- there's hardly anyone left! But the final scene and the way the granddaughter reacts is just a bit insane--and seriously impairs the show overall. Generally well done but it just lets up at the end.
