Three attempts are made on Mannix' life within a short period of time, and the killers were each offered a substantial sum of money to do the job. Mannix concludes that the only man who hated him enough to put out these contracts on his life was Frank Bauer, whom he captured and helped put in jail for a murder and robbery in Nevada. The only problem: Bauer, who had recently broken out of prison, was killed during his escape. Mannix decides to go to Nevada to find out whether Bauer's brother may be behind the attempts on his life -- and perhaps to find the more than $200,000 still missing from the robbery. Written by

During Mannix' trip to Reno, Nevada, Tom Corey (Garry Walberg) tells Mannix that he lives at the "Monarch Hotel." When Corey apparently falls from the hotel balcony later in the episode, Mannix arrives on the scene just as Corey is being taken away on a gurney to a waiting ambulance. When Mannix leans over to listen to something Corey wants to say, however, the low camera angle inadvertently identifies the real location - the Knickerbocker Hotel, which is just off Hollywood Boulevard in Los Angeles, not Reno.
