Storyline

A potential candidate for governor, a successful businessman employs Intertect to probe his background. His rationale: he wants to see if the detective agency can turn up any dirt that could be used by political opponents. If Intertect can't find any, he reasons his political opponents wouldn't be able to do so, either. Mannix follows his own leads while his Intertect colleagues probe the obvious. As Mannix's investigation progresses, people he has interviewed turn up dead. It turns out the candidate is part of the Syndicate and even sits on its council. Now, Mannix may be the next person on the hit list. Written by Bill Koenig

Great idea for a Mannix plot. So great that they used it again in 1973, in season 6. In the second version William Shatner is in the Charles Drake role. Almost a scene for scene re-make of this episode. Search For a Whisper is its title.Yvonne (Batgirl)_ Craig is also in the remake.
