A mystery writer finds a suicide note in his home -- supposedly written by himself. The author specializes in stories that are based on actual cases and he's working on a new novel taken from an unsolved murder. Mannix tries to protect the author, but the writer insists on trying to work on the case. This complicates things greatly for Mannix. In addition, Mannix must deal with a collection of shady characters as he tries to find the would-be killer.
