Storyline

Mannix is brought to a small town in New Mexico on a ruse, and then subpoenaed to testify as an expert witness for the prosecution in a murder trial. After his testimony, the woman representing the defendant announces she wants to resign as defense counsel. Mannix decides that instead of returning to Los Angeles, he'll remain to aid the defense, encouraging the defendant's attorney to stick with the case while he tries to dig up new information that could free her client.

Owch....
14 May 2013 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I say 'owch' because once again, Mannix gets the snot beaten out of him. However, this kidney punch looks even worse! So how did he get slugged in the kidney? Well, it all begins with him going to New Mexico and being subpoenaed to testify in court. When he's done, he is about to get back on the plane and return to Los Angeles but changes his mind...when POW he gets hit! Obviously, if someone goes to all the trouble of beating him up, there is far more to this open and shut case than meets the eye.

The rest of the story consists of Mannix changing sides and now helping the defense. What this turns up and the real motive for the killing and the real murderer is what makes this pretty interesting. Overall, a pretty good episode once again of this series.
