The 1950's were innocent times, right? Yet this book was published in 1951 and the plot revolves around the murder of a rich, handsome playboy who has a VERY nasty hobby. We'd call it "date-rape." Back then he was a "wolf" who wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't mind getting rough to get what he wanted. He knew he could get away with it. As one of his victims says, "No girl wants to come forward and make charges that are going to get her a lot of publicity." Indeed, when this particular young lady is suspected of the murder, her mother's greatest fear is that her daughter's name would appear in the newspapers.

This is an unusual Perry Mason in that we find the celebrated lawyer away from his busy office and on vacation in a friend's rustic lakeside cabin. It's in a popular ski resort and the winter season is in full swing. Perry hasn't come for the winter sports, but for some much-needed rest. Sadly, he lacks the ability to leave his work at the office and he's eagerly awaiting the arrival of his faithful secretary Della Street with some case files to work on. This guy was a "Type-A" personality decades before the term was invented.

Before Della gets there, he's rousted out of bed by a frantic mother whose rebellious daughter was the last person known to have been with the murdered man. He tries to fend her off, saying "I'm an attorney and not a detective." Of course, she knows better and so do we. Anyway, he's been bored out of his mind for four days and isn't about to let this hum-dinger of a case get away. The next thing you know, Paul Drake (who admits to being a detective) has flown in and Perry is cooking him breakfast! Honestly, reading about the Great Man fixing eggs, toast, bacon, coffee, and OJ and then serving it on a warm plate (except for the coffee and OJ) is one of the high points of the book. And then Della arrives and he puts his arm around her shoulder and pats her (the author doesn't specify WHERE he pats her, so you can think whatever you like) and says, "Good girl!" Try THAT sometime and see what it gets you.

In addition to the mother-daughter suspects, there's a rugged local sheriff who's willing to go toe-to-toe with the big city lawyer and a farmer with a grudge against the dead man and his nosy wife who's going to spill her guts or die trying. And the local District Attorney is a cock-sure, bombastic bumbler who's certain he can out-wit the great Perry Mason so poor old Hamilton Burger gets a vacation, too.

This is the fourth in this series for me and the best so far. There's not one, but TWO very good red herrings and (while I had an inkling) I wasn't sure whodunit until the very end. A very satisfying mystery. Sadly, the "book description" describes the wrong book AGAIN. Poor Erle is probably spinning in his grave.

Great p!ot, great writer, good story. Need to look up more storytelling books like this one. Good stories are rare, classic stories are hare to find

Gardner must have eaten some pretty funny stuff when he was a kid. I don't know how he wiggles through such a mess.

This is fast-paced, engrossing murder mystery at just about its finest. The plot is credible, and Mason acts with his usual quick wits and risk-taking nerves. There are some minor defects, the result of hasty writing and editing: a few phrases are repeated too often and too close together. But these don't seriously affect the overall Gardner-esque style.

An excellent story. The circumstances give some insight into the mindset of the 50's with its obsession with scandal. The story moves along nicely as the facts surrounding the crime are discovered. Tension is maintained throughout. The ending is somewhat unsatisfying, though. I don't want to give it away, but there is no grand denouement, just an explanation.
Low_Skill_But_Happy_Deagle
The book contains details not found in the actual episode. Especially that the women were seen being interviewed in an office, and that's not what happened. The instructions Perry gave her were not given in his office, but outside. All in all a perfect example of why he's still the best at solving crime in America.

I read lots of Gardner's PM novels and can't think of one that I hadn't liked. I wasn't so sure about this one at first, but it got really good and I very much liked it by the end. At this point in my readership, one of the things I like is to watch Gardner work on the reader. In this story, he was throwing clues to entice "smart" guys like me to create my short list of suspects. In the end, I didn't have a clue!
We love the Perry Mason books -
