No good deed ever goes unpunished. Perry Mason kept forgetting about this simple truth and as a result kept getting in the same trap over and over. This time he ended up in a courtroom following the proceedings of a case with which he has nothing in common. A redheaded woman was accused of a theft of valuable jewels. She was assigned a young inexperienced public defender with her being as poor as a church mouse.The young guy was badly losing to prosecution due to his complete lack of experience. [...]

What begins with Mason helping out a young attorney with his cross-examination skills in defending a young waitress framed for jewel theft turns much more complicated when soon after, she finds herself framed for murder. Though Mason’s client in this one seems much more straightforward than some others he’s defended, the other players have much to hide. The evidence is already rather complicated and the fact that everyone (not the actual culprit alone) is trying to hide something adds furthe [...]

This novel was the basis for the first Perry Mason episode ever aired (S1E1, not the pilot), so you know it's going to be good. This is the famous case with the identical guns and Perry using one to add extra bullet holes to the murder scene (forcing the authorities to realize that guns had been switched, although, as it turns out, not by the guilty parties, and thus unnecessary, although quite helpful to Perry's case). In fact, the stuff with the guns is all a red herring; something the defenda [...]

A little too drawn out and I nearly got lost by the end; I've read better from Gardner.

(3.8)There's a lot of lawyer talk but it's really interesting. Also, there's some Della/Perry but it's only hinted at.Recommended 12+ for murder and language

#45 in the Perry Mason series. For once Perry has a client who doesn't disregard his instructions to keep her mouth shut; in fact, Perry instructs her to tell the police and reporters everything she knows, over and over. Mason sails close to the wind in manufacturing evidence after the fact that he knows Sgt. Holcomb will swear he discovered sooner than was possible. Preliminary hearing pyrotechnics eventually embarrass DA Burger but getting there is all the fun in this above average series entr [...]

Not one of my favorites. The usual mishmash of who shot who, when and where. Drawn out courtroom scenes. Hysteronics. Since learning that Gardner dictated his books into a machine, and seemed to have control over the degree of editing his work, you can't help but wish for an editor with a sharp blue pencil. So much needless repetition of information and long drawn-out speech. Gardner should have been his own editor, as many of the best writers were and are. The "Restless Redhead" herself drops o [...]

This one has a particularly memorable opening with Perry Mason visiting a courtroom where he winds up advising a young attorney on cross-examination techniques. Not my favorite way to end one of his stories, though.

Definitely one of the better Perry Mason novels. Things move quickly in the courtroom here but Mason really shows his ability. The addition of a young, small-town lawyer learning from Mason really gave insight into some of Mason's tactics.

More confusing than most of his books - and Mason steps way over the legal line at one point. Still, I always enjoy Gardner's books, as much for the glimpse of the world of the 1940s as for the story.

Well, usually Perry Mason skirted on the edge of lawful and unlawful. This time, I feel that he has fallen over that edge. So, three stars. I understand that his deed helps solving the case, but still, it's a wrong deed.
