This was Erle Stanley Gardner's first Perry Mason mystery. What a plot! I kept guessing until the end. A good, old fashioned mystery by one of the best mystery writers ever! No blood and gore, no sex and violence, just great plotting and great writing. Perry Mason solves crimes by using his wits, he doesn't beat up or torture people to get a confession. (He is really as much a detective as he is a lawyer, so you have to suspend your disbelief. I practiced law for 30 years and never met a lawyer like Perry Mason!) This book was originally published in 1933, so parts of it are racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, and politically incorrect. But Raymond Chandler's work is, at a minimum, politically incorrect, and if you ignore Chandler or Gardner, then you will miss out. This is the third Perry Mason book that I have read, and I intend to read the entire Perry Mason series.
