But as the case grows more involved, Mannix' client suddenly denies having hired him, or even knowing who he is. Written by aldanoli

Very good---and a couple nice supporting performances.

Joe Mannix is about to leave his office to go meet with a new client. However, something REALLY odd happens--he gets a phone call from an unknown guy who strongly advises Joe to stay home! He naturally ignores the caller but the second he walks out the door, a bullet nearly hits him! A bit later, Joe meets with the client. Mr. Emory is apparently being blackmailed and he wants Joe to take care of the payoff. However, this payoff goes badly--and now the guy wants double! Way to go, Mannix! But things get worse. While investigating for Emory, Mannix shoots someone...and it now seems like EVERYTHING was a setup! But why?!

Aside from one dumb part in the finale (where Mannix disables a guard and DOESN'T take the gun--duh!), this is a dandy episode with an interesting plot and a couple great supporting performances. Parley Baer, an old familiar face, places a hilariously old hippie. And, the guy working the desk at the hotel--he was a hoot! Well worth seeing.
