Love these oldies but goodies. Rarely can I determine out who committed the murder. Perhaps it's because the author was a criminal lawyer himself who wrote 146 books, 85 of which had Perry Mason as the protagonist. This one is no different. However, the story begins with an original painting that is proclaimed to be a copy. The case becomes more convoluted when the person making that statement is shot three times in the back in the apartment of a beautiful young woman named Maxine Lindsay. Miss Lindsay is arrested by the police and it becomes Perry Mason's task to determine whether or not she did it.
