Peter Martin, the son of a respected doctor who often ministered to the less fortunate, is found at the bottom of the stairs in his home with his neck broken. His sister does not believe the medical examiner's conclusion that his death was accidental, and hires Mannix to find out if he was murdered, and if so, by whom. A clue left by a young boy whom Mannix observes spying on the Martin home leads Mannix to a Chicano neighborhood, where he discovers further evidence about Martin's death, but also uncovers resentments and accusations toward Martin by some residents of the neighborhood.

Mannix returns to his car. While he is just about to open his driver side door, he looks at his driver side door mirror. The camera does a close-up shot of the mirror where we see the face of a man in a window of the apartment building across the street from the car. This would imply that the man in the apartment window would be located at some distance behind his car. The camera then does a long shot including the building and the car. At this point we see the man in the apartment, except that the man in the apartment is located towards the front of the car. See more
