Magnum's luck takes a tumble when he injures his ankle while training for an upcoming charity sports event, and if his foot doesn't heal in time, his place will be taken for the race. But his luck looks set to fall even more when he finds that prostitute Leslie Emery, who he met when he was working as a hotel detective, has now given up working as a call girl and has recently taken a job as a waitress at the King Kamehameha Club, and wants to hire him to help her find her missing sister. Although she is well-meaning, Leslie has proven to cause nothing but problems for Magnum, and sure enough, in next to no time they are up to their necks in chaos, as they uncover that Leslie's missing sister is involved with powerful political figures.
At the 14th Annual Convention of Private Investigators, Magnum is to receive the 'Local P.I. of the Year' award, but the event is brought to a halt when Jean Claude Fornier, the famous French detective, suddenly drops dead while giving a speech, after being poisoned. Magnum is "helped" by several fellow crime-busting acquaintances as he seeks the murderer, and becomes entangled with a gang of drug smugglers.
It is almost the 4th of July, and Higgins heads to Maui for an annual writers conference, and Rick and T.C. take a trip away, leaving Magnum on the Estate to face the horror of his tax audit. But that's nothing compared to the terror yet to come when Magnum becomes the focus of a crazed, obsessed killer, who repeatedly phones him with cryptic nursery rhyme riddles of upcoming killings. At first he thinks it is a crank caller, but the full reality of the situation hits home when a prostitute is murdered in circumstances reflecting the clues given, and the menacing calls continue, with the deranged killer boasting about his crimes and giving clues of the next one.
Magnum's ex-wife Michelle leaves her five-year-old daughter Lily to be safeguarded by Thomas, as she escapes Vietnamese assassins out to kill her and her husband, General Hue. As Thomas watches over the child, he begins to wonder why Michelle has suddenly left Lily with him and if Lily is his own daughter, and once again sets about trying to track down his elusive former wife.
When Higgins unwittingly causes Magnum to wipe an expensive computer game loaned from T.C., and Thomas accidentally erases a chunk of Higgins' memoirs stored on the computer, a feud breaks out between the pair. Magnum is trying to break a major, crooked gambling ring that is operating on the islands, but it is none too easy while in the middle of the falling out with Higgins, which starts out with each trying to out-do the other with "eye for an eye" practical jokes, and quickly develops into a particularly bitter battle of wills.
Higgins is driving visiting Pamela Bates - an old editor friend of Robin Masters' - to the Estate when someone tries to run them off the road and over a cliff. But it seems that it's not a case for Magnum, when Pamela insists on waiting for her own mainland investigator friend to arrive and look into it. Pamela's investigator friend turns out to be famous crime mystery writer Jessica Fletcher, and so both Jessica and Magnum set about investigating just who wants one of the visiting guests dead, and why.
Part 1 of 2. Part 2 is Murder She Wrote S03E08
Magnum is working on a case when he sees a young native Hawaiian girl become an accidental witness to a murder. With the gunman after her, Magnum saves the young woman as they escape by diving into the sea and is injured with a gunshot wound in the process. He regains consciousness several days later on the remote, secluded island of Kapu, after being rescued by a native fisherman from the island, and suffering from a hazy memory of the incident. There is no sign of the girl, and the island natives insist that he was the only one found. Thomas tries to remember the events that lead to him being on the island, but as he tries to uncover the secrets of the island and its people, it begins to seem more and more as if they don't want him to find any answers or to leave.
T.C.'s children, Melody and Bryant, come to visit him in Hawaii, but at the airport Melody goes missing. It transpires that the young girl has been kidnapped and is being held for $300,000 ransom. Magnum, Rick, and Higgins help in the rush to either raise the ransom money in time, or deduce and find whoever snatched Melody. The kidnapping puts a strain on T.C.'s relationship with his son Bryant, as well as his ex-wife Tina, who quickly comes to Hawaii with her new boyfriend as soon as she hears of the kidnapping of her daughter.
While Rick is planning a surprise birthday bash at the King Kamehameha Club for Icepick, Carol asks Magnum to observe a court case she is presenting before Judge Kearns, who drops the case on a simple technicality. She considers the Judge to be her mentor, but is concerned that of late he has been acting uncharacteristically, and suspects him of taking bribes to dismiss cases. She asks Thomas to help her hopefully disprove her worries. But the investigation turns up evidence that implicates Icepick, who in turn faces having to implicate the woman he was in love with decades earlier. Carol, Rick and Icepick must all face up to the weaknesses and mortality of their mentors.
Higgins goes on a survivalist trip on an island with a small group of young offenders as part of a program aimed at improving their self-esteem. But he has to call upon his survival skills much more than expected when a planned escape by the boys doesn't go as intended and sees the leader of the trip shot dead, leaving Higgins being hunted down on the island by the three young convicts. Back on the Estate, Magnum, with Rick and T.C., plans to take advantage of Higgins' absence by holding a big party, but the get-together seems ill-fated from the start.
1940s San Francisco: Private Investigator Thomas S. Magnum investigates the murder of newspaper tycoon William T. Maxfield. The case involves characters that strangely bear a strong resemblance to the "modern day" Magnum, T.C., Higgins and Rick.
T.C. is giving Thomas helicopter flying lessons when he is shot. With T.C. hospitalized, Mac appears on the scene, "volunteering" his services in running Island Hoppers. But it seems that the assailants were actually gunning for Magnum, after a week previously, somebody impersonated him when trying to blackmail a Mexican Mafia King. With Magnum marked as a dead man as a result of the mistaken identity, confusion and chaos reigns, and as per usual, Mac just happens to be in the middle of it all.
After a run of bad luck, including being fired from a case investigating embezzlement, owing Rick money, and letting T.C.'s junior baseball team down, Magnum decides to get away from it all by going on a solo mountain climbing hike, without telling anyone where he is headed. But on the climb, already suffering from a centipede bite, he becomes trapped under the wreckage of an old World War II fighter plane he discovers. With his legs caught under the wreckage, and no one knowing where he is, Magnum is forced to review his mortality, his values, and the case from which he was fired.
Magnum is in Chinatown with Rick and T.C. celebrating his upcoming fortieth birthday, but he has little to celebrate when he loses his lucky $2 bill that his grandfather gave him as a boy. While looking for it, he by chance briefly meets a beautiful woman. He also winds up helping an old friend who is one of a number of shopkeepers being terrorized by an organized gang. The case takes a backseat as he becomes preoccupied with the woman only for it to seem that she is tied up with the gang he is supposed to be investigating, in a situation that sees him losing more than just his lucky bill.
Rick persuades Thomas to take a high-reward, supposedly simple missing person case, but the person paying for the case is actually New York City cop Michael Doheny, who has his own reasons for wanting to find the man in question.

The rather eccentric authoress has just finished writing a new play, but now is convinced that someone is trying to kill her for it, and that they have trailed her to the Islands.
Rick insists that Magnum search for Icepick when he suddenly vanishes, seemingly pulling a disappearing act to avoid some information that could land him in very hot water. But when Rick is arrested for allegedly killing a hitman that was contracted to murder Icepick, Thomas finds himself in the midst of an even more tangled investigation, especially when Rick doesn't deny any of the charges and gives a full confession.
Magnum is caught in a shootout in a warehouse that leaves him fighting for his life.

MacReynolds. He also spends time with each of his close friends individually, and, in one way or another, says goodbye and how important they are all to him, in case he does not survive.
