Las Vegas private detective Dan Tanna (Robert Urich) is hired to find out if legendary country singer Hank Jenner (Strother Martin) is really dead. His daughter (Lauren Tewes) is sure she saw him at the chapel during her Vegas wedding but to the world he has been dead for ten years.

Her debt-ridden manager Lyle Galen (Lloyd Bochner) sends goons to dissuade Tanna. But the P.I. is considerably more bewildered by the secrets his client and the man she wants him to find are hiding. The resolution is kind of redneck. But the use of a soundtrack which sounds like a bizarre amalgam of disco & porn is a tad vexing set against a rustic storyline.

As with any episode of this show the guest stars are the amongst most impressive aspects of the production. Lloyd Bochner, Tony Curtis, Lauren Tewes, Slim Pickens, Randy Powell...Quite a list for any network show of the time.

Lauren Tewes played cruise director Julie McCoy on the mega-hit schlock series Love Boat. She made guest appearances on several other ABC TV series lending her star power to each. These included Charlie's Angels, Starsky & Hutch, Fantasy Island, TJ Hooker and Finder of Lost Loves.
