  • Tina, a P.I., poses as Jennifer Sandstrom and makes Jim the bait to attract the police. Jim exposes her and finds out that the real Jennifer's sister probably was murdered. They set out to solve the mystery murder, while avoiding the police and a hitman.

    Jim teams up with a colleague P.I. Tina to solve a mystery murder, at the same time being chased by both the police and a hitman. Stephanie Powers, who plays Tina, works excellently with James Garner in this episode as a horse of a pair, a role that she would repeat nine years later in her own success detective series Hart to Hart together with Robert Wagner. Even though Jim acts as the more experienced one, Tina gets to stnad on her own firm ground as a P.I. At the end and for once, Rockford gets to say the last line to the police, here represented by Lt. Diehl (Sgt. Becker has a minor role in the beginning of the episode). A classic and entertaining whodunnit episode.
