Storyline

Private Investigator Joe Mannix (star of an eponymous detective series) is brought to friend Mark with a mild flesh wound after a shooting outside the Hall of Records, while re-investigating the Lou Reynolds murder (Mannix season seven, episode four, "Little Girl Lost", 1973), about incriminating tapes from twenty-five years ago. Unfortunately, Joe's X-rays show a life-threatening cardiac risk, so Mark decides to "help" his investigation. His client, Lou's daughter, television reporter Tina Reynolds, is determined to solve this case, now that she has moved back to Los Angeles from Florida, but the killer, who wears a police academy ring, proves quite deadly, fatal for witness Stella, who sold Lou the tapes, but possibly kept some back for blackmail, which would explain her apparent affluence without matching income.

George Fallon: Oh, hold on a minute. Let's all take a deep breath before this gets out of hand. I mean... this doesn't make any sense; that's crazy. What reason would Edie have for killing Lou?
Joe Mannix: Just one.
Tina Reynolds: No...
Joe Mannix: You abandoned Lou and Tina. When you came back, Lou didn't want you. You filed for divorce and sole custody. He was about to get it. You couldn't let that happen; you wanted Tina too much. There was only one sure way you could get her...
