Perry Mason #1: Case of the deadly toy

27 Apr

Nora Allison sees the coldness in the eyes of her fiancee when he slaps his young son, recognizes the man for what he is and calls of the wedding.  This is followed by receiving threats by mail and being roped by the ex-wife of her ex-fiancee in the custody battle of their son.  This bimbette is stupid enough to be framed in a murder case.  Enter the suave Perry Mason with his intelligent secretary Della Street and the dependable sleuth Paul Drake – the real culprits are caught in court, the police are made to look stupid and the client goes scot-free.

Read the book to find out how it all happens.

Perry Mason – one of my favorite characters.  I was introduced to him during my adolescence by my Father (yes, the man who has taught me everything – and continues to teach me every day).  Having briefly lived in Los Angeles I understand the locale and am old enough to remember an age without mobiles.  I plan to update this post with book reads as and when it happens.  Keep watching.

Perry Mason the smarty smart lawyer specializes in tricky cases where his client is usually an innocent bimbette but occasionally an innocent bumbler.  He outwits the police who are framing his innocent client at times skating on thin ice legally.  All this is with the help of his pretty secretary Della Street who loves the action.  Perry Mason is ably supported by Paul Drake the very efficient and effective detective.
