The resulting crash lands him in a private hospital, where the delusions and paranoia continue. But then a young nurse confides in Mannix that the physician in charge of the facility -- whom Mannix also knew as his friend -- has actually been giving him drugs to keep him in that condition. With her help, Mannix arranges an escape, to learn why he has been victimized in this way. Written by aldanoli See less
