Frances Celane has good reason to pout. Thanks to a provision in her late father's will administered by her uncle, she's caught in the middle of a family feud between matrimony and money. If she chooses marriage, she loses a million. But beautiful young Frances has a strong will of her own that she's not afraid to use. One way or another, she means to hear wedding bells and cash registers making beautiful music together. Her first move: hire Perry Mason to orchestrate things.
Unfortunately, stubbornness runs in Frances Celane's family, as Mason discovers when he confronts her Uncle Edward Norton. After Perry's powers of persuasion fail to penetrate his hard head, someone decides the only way of cashing in is by bashing in the uncooperative uncle's skull. But when the blood spills, so do the secrets. Then it's Mason's turn to brood, as he tries to figure out if a girl as pretty as his client could have a hand in something so ugly....

Another classic hard boiled mystery
If you enjoy Phillip Marlowe, Mike Hammer, Mike Shane, and the other hard boiled detectives you will enjoy the Perry Mason series of mysteries. This is not the Perry Mason you may know from the television series. This Perry Mason is s tough, no hold bared, lawyer/detective. Think Phillip Marlow or Mike Hammer with a law degree and you got the idea.

I have read all the Perry Mason books several times and now that my eyesight is failing, I can listen to them on Audible. Thanks!
