If books could kill....
3 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"A Rage to Kill" is a very strange and difficult to believe episode of "Mannix". It is entertaining but hard to believe it could be real in any way.

The show begins with a psychiatrist appearing to have died by suicide. But his mistress knows that this isn't possible...someone MUST have murdered him and made it look like suicide. With the help of the Doc's step-son, Mannix investigates the anonymous subjects in the dead Doctor's recent book to see if any of these very dangerous folks could have committed the murder.

Improbable to say the least, suddenly Mannix is a mental health expert and manages to figure everything out a bit too neatly. Entertaining but the age of the show (towards the end of the seventh season) is starting to show with more and more outlandish episodes. Still, it is entertaining.
