Goofs

Jim gets Christine in his car and asks her to explain everything. As she begins to speak they appear to pass a staging area for the production: two tractor trailers are parked/open, crew members appear to be grouped together, and two cars identical to Jim's are parked. See more »

Quotes

Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Caller: Jim, it's Shirley at the cleaners. You know that brown jacket? The one I said looks so great on you? Your favorite? We lost it.

In this story Rockford gets hired with a phony story which in and of itself is no big deal. A lot of great detective novels have begun that way. But all Stefanie Powers wants is for the bad guys to follow him leaving her free to work thr vase as she is also a private eye.

The case Powers is on involves the 'accidental' drowning of a woman whom sister Sherry Jackson isn't particularly looking like she's doing any mourning for.

I have to say I wasn"t expecting the result in the end. Always the mark of a good mystery.
