Pretty good...and with a nice sense of humor!
11 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

A rich recluse (modeled somewhat after Howard Hughes) hires Mannix to find his wife. Although his wife is listed as officially dead as a result of suicide, he insists the woman has been spotted a few times and Mannix should find her. Soon, however, it becomes obvious that the man has no intention of letting the woman or Mannix live.

This is a musical episode. The missing wife is a professional folk musician and there is a performance by the small-time rock groups "The Peppermint Trolley Company". I personally hate folk music but you may enjoy her singing. But the rest of the show is quite good. And, much of it is because the show has a wonderful sense of humor. I just loved the Native American bartender--he was hilarious and makes the show well worth seeing just for his cameo.
