Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE FENCED-IN WOMAN. ****. I always enjoy the Perry Mason novels from this author. Although this one isn’t one of his best, it is still an excellent read.

Jännittävä oikeussalidraama, jossa asianajaja Perry Mason puolustaa asiakastaan Morley Edeniä, jonka asunnosta löytyy murhattu mies. Alkuasetelma on eriskummallinen: Morley Eden on ostanut talon, jonka toista puoliskoa asuttaakin yllättäen myyjän vaimo. Tämä on teettänyt tontin ja talon halki piikkilanka-aidan, joka jakaa koko kiinteistön kahtia. Kun tapaukseen liittyy vielä murha, tarvitaan Perry Masonin nokkeluutta tapauksen ratkaisemiseksi.

A nice little book I listened to as audiobook. A bit nerve-bending on some places as the police twists Mason in a very irritating way, but when one gets through it one is happy at the end :)

Not one of the better Mason novels, but we were warned that this wasn't polished by Gardner before he passed. Still, I know some writers who'd be thrilled with this as a final draft.
disappointing Perry Mason, weak characters
Muy entretenido, como siempre con Perry Mason
