"You open that door without a search warrant," he said, "and I'll break your Jaw."

Perry Mason to two cops who want to search his office. Perry is still in his tough guy bag in the third book of the series. 1934 publication date on this one. No courtroom scenes, no Hamilton Burger, no Lieutenant Tragg. Perry doesn't need a courtroom. He cross examines everyone anyway. and solves the mystery doing it.

I love it.

I'll give pretty much any Gardner a solid three stars, even if I know the perpetrator from the beginning.

This is one of the really old Perry Masons---1930s era---complete with tension between him and Paul Drake (his right-hand man of later mysteries) and hiding stuff from Della (Della eventually comes to know more about Mason's cases than he does). And when Mason whips out a skeleton key not once but twice to make his way through the locked and unlocked doors of apartment buildings and hotels,...more

I love reading the Perry Mason stories when I was young and am re-reading them now...while the story line is familiar to any one who has read Gardner's Mason books, I found the story just as engaging as I remember. Mason and his associates, Drake and Street, interact in ways that demonstrate a strong willed person being supported by people who believe in him even though they may not always agree with his approach. The damsels in distress (or their benefactors) are just as strong-willed so the st...more

When a young woman enters a beautiful legs contest, where the winner gets a movie contract, she has no idea what about to happen to her life. After winning, she is taken to L.A. and left to fend for herself. The business leaders of her town who were talked into financing the contest, were cheated out of the their money, and now two different suitors are in the city trying to find her and avenge her humiliation. When the man who pulled off the con is found dead, it looks like there is no lack for...more

This was one of the books of the series which I ever read and I loved it! The style of writing was excellent, the plot was good and somewhat realistic.

Perry mason lies to the police to trap a murderer. complicated plot.

Interesting case. (I read this a while ago and forgot to record it)

First one of this genre that I read, my Gram (a voracious reader in her own right) had it sitting around when I was staying with her. I was familiar with the TV show, this set me off in a whole different direction.

Great descriptions of how people lived in that era and much racier than the TV show. Della Street and Perry Mason were a lot hotter in their interaction here. Steamy!

Each one with a unique mystery too and that courtroom moment where the guilty party confesses to Perry Mason. Ah, so sat...more

Early days, 1934. There are speakeasies and elevator boys and that old dodge about small-town beauty contest winners that Gardner liked so much he used it in at least two other Perry Mason books. It only takes half an hour to get someplace and back in L.A. traffic. The formula isn't quite ironclad yet. Drake and Mason don't seem to know each other well. We never see Tragg or Hamilton Burger. But it's an action-packed spinning top of a yarn.
Slinkyboy
Yup, that's Perry Mason.
Jimmit Shah
A bit crude. The characters have not developed as much yet. Perry Mason keeps saying "Snap to it"...but appropriate somehow. Good read from a character evolution point of view. Not much in terms in of the story.
Huma
Another wonderful novel....Mason's lines at the end really sums it up for me:
"I always take risks. It's the way I play the game; I like it."

Would luv to see a movie adapted from this manuscript!
Gautam
an average end to this yet another average year:)
Pete Roman
One of the best Perry Mason novels! The Perry Mason formula from the latest novels hasn't been introduced yet! Kind of missing the courtroom drama though.
Karan Shah
Erle Stanley Gardner is my favorite mystery murder writer.
His books are very fast paced and witty. This book is one of his best
Kaylynn
Oh my goodness, civil liberties were different in the 1930s.
Cristina Vela
You can't go wrong with Perry Mason!
Carole
Another good Perry Mason classic

Innovative and restless in his nature, he was bored by the routine of legal practice, the only part of which he enjoyed was trial work and the development of trial strategy. I...more
