Storyline

At his posh soirée, a publisher sneaks off into the garden to conspire with a sleazy PI. Hiding in the bushes, a man in gloves plugs the publisher, tosses the revolver, then splits. The PI picks it up, just in time for the party-goers to spot him holding the gat, which turns out to be his. The PI hires Peter Gunn to clear him, but is too afraid to level with Gunn.

A PI falsely suspected of murder hires Pete to clear him, involving him in an upper-class cast of characters.

The series set itself apart from others with its unusual array of characters. Here, there's Waldo the fey astrologer and an elderly jazz man, Fuzzy. Good to see a grizzled old- timer like William Fawcett get a payday and a non-clownish role for a change. Together, the two add some needed color since the plot is not too involving. Plus there's less atmosphere than usual. Too bad neither Mother nor girlfriend Edie provide a lift by making an appearance. The ending too is not very convincing, though it does manage some poignancy. Mainly, the half-hour is just a routine murder story without much else to recommend it.
