A crime thriller starring the sleuthing lawyer portrayed in the HBO limited series—from the Edgar Award–winning “kingpin among the mystery writers” (The New York Times).
Stewart Bedford is willing to cooperate with a blackmailer to protect his beloved wife. But when he wakes up in a daze to find the man shot dead with Bedford’s gun and his blond escort missing, he’ll need some help from defense lawyer Perry Mason . . .
This mystery is part of Edgar Award–winning author Erle Stanley Gardner’s classic, long-running Perry Mason series, which has sold three hundred million copies and serves as the inspiration for the HBO show starring Matthew Rhys and Tatiana Maslany.

I’ve gotten hooked on Perry Mason since watching the HBO series. Pretty sure I had identified the culprit after assorted red herrings. Nope. Not to give the ending away, but I thought it was a little too contrived. Still enjoyable. Now on to the next case.
