Storyline

A woman enters an apartment, is attacked and then thrown over a balcony to her death. The police conclude it is suicide, thanks in part to a phony suicide note. Friends of the woman's family hire Mannix to prove it's really a murder case so the woman can be buried in accordance with her faith. Despite his own doubts, Mannix becomes convinced it is a murder case. Yet the woman's father doesn't want the detective to pursue the case and then his clients abruptly terminate his services. Mannix, however, is determined to pursue the case. Written by Bill Koenig

I could predict this one but it still was entertaining.
23 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"A Pittance of Faith" begins with a young woman being tossed off a balcony to her death. To make it look like a suicide, the killer leaves a typed suicide note. Now to me, this was a weakness, as I cannot believe anyone killing themselves and typing a note--and, oddly, the police chalked this one off as a suicide.

A short time later, a man representing a group of local merchants approaches Mannix. They want him to investigate the case and show it was NOT suicide--as the dead lady was Catholic and could not be buried in consecrated ground because of the way she died. Oddly, however, the lady's father (David Opatashu) is against the investigation--and you'd THINK he'd be in full agreement with reopening the case. Mannix correctly surmises there is more to this cases and somehow her identical twin has some part in this.

As I said, this one was a bit predictable but still it entertains. Not a great show and it sure had its flaws. Also, look for Larry Linville in his third appearance as a police detective as well as the singer/actor Bobby Troup as himself.
