When the episode begins, Joe Mannix learns that during a recent accident, three people died and, inexplicably, no one claimed the body of one of them...a small girl! Then, out of the blue, the police receive money from an anonymous donor for a funeral for the child. Joe attends and sees a blonde there and wonders if perhaps she knows about the child. When he later finds her and asks, she gives a story about reading about all this in the paper and gives him a lot of backstory about herself...none of which end up being true! In fact, throughout the entire episode this lady lies one time after another...and it all turns out to be related to a robbery long ago.
This episode, if you think about it, makes little sense. If the lady had nothing to do with Mannix instead of later hiring him, he would have gone about his merry way. Not exactly logical. But...entertaining like any episode of "Mannix". And, if was entertaining to see Mannix dispatch the guy who took his car keys...that alone makes it worth seeing!
