About the Author
Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) is a prolific American author best known for his works centered on the lawyer-detective Perry Mason. At the time of his death in March of 1970, in Ventura, California, Gardner was "the most widely read of all American writers" and "the most widely translated author in the world," according to social historian Russell Nye. The first Perry Mason novel, The Case of The Velvet Claws, published in 1933, had sold twenty-eight million copies in its first fifteen years. There have been six motion pictures based on his work and the hugely popular Perry Mason television series starring Raymond Burr, which aired for nine years and 271 episodes.

You can tell that Gardner is still working out a few kinks in the one. But the plot is fairly ingenious and the pacing is fairly quick. Characters are fairly well developed.
A gentle word of warning in this hyperactive time - there are a couple phases that Paul Drake uses (and were common more than 75 years ago) that might upset some people.
This is highly recommended - I would rate this a really high 9.0 to 9.5 out of 10!
If you want to read a great example of A Perry Mason Novel, this is one for you.
