Another good story. Perry cuts a few corners -- keeps things interesting. I'm interested to know how the character evolves. ( )

An action packed Perry Mason mystery, with lots of sensational stuff even before getting to the court room. Perry Mason is approached by a bishop to act on behalf of someone else about an inheritance of some sort; the bishop stutters, which seems inconsistent with his vocation. In chasing up the background to this case, Perry gets in very, very deep and really has to work hard to avoid any kind of charges being brought against himself. Things get pretty convoluted, and there are a lot of people muddying things along the way. Very entertaining, all kinds of small clues, a variety of characters, some impressive bluffing, some rival detectives (with some desperate methods), and several close shaves. Everything is revealed by the end, so there is no sense of the being cheated out of a solution. ( )

This book is taking main characters and the Perry Mason formula, putting in a bottle, shaking it up and spill it out on the pages of a book. Not your typical Perry Mason title. One of the most adventerous titles in the series. ( )
