Wes Tully, a private detective who is a friend of Joe Mannix, is killed by two men who carefully stage his death to look like an accidental drowning. But Tully had confided in Mannix that he might be killed because of a case he was working on, and that his death would be made to look like an accident. Believing that his friend was murdered, Mannix retrieves some important evidence from the case Tully was working on -- but that only prompts the men who killed Tully to threaten Peggy and Toby in order to get that evidence back.

The set used as the entryway for the home of Martin Kimbrough (Harry Townes) is the same used as that used as the entryway of Dr. Wallenberg's home in the previous episode, "Fly, Little One" (where Dana threatens to "fly away" from the second story landing near the beginning of the episode).

Very good but there is a HUGE plot problem with this one.
6 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This episode begins with two goons killing a guy and making it look like an accident. You soon learn that the dead man was a private eye and had confided to Joe Mannix that he MIGHT soon die due to what he's learned on his current case. Soon, Mannix is pulled into the case when he discovers some hidden film. But, before he can take it to the police, he's informed that the gang has kidnapped Peggy and her son out at her cabin*. So, Mannix is forced to give them the film. Oddly, this DOESN'T stop the gang and the STILL seem intent on killing Mannix. What gives?!

There is a HUGE plot hole with this show and it's a shame as it's otherwise a pretty good show. It seems that the man who originally hired the first detective actually is part of the gang. No one would have known this had he not hired the detective. So why did he hire anyone in the first place?! The plot, though exciting, makes no sense when you think about it!

*The exact same thing came up TWICE in the space of only a few episodes! Yep, Peggy and her son were nearly killed while out at the vacation cabin!!!
