Publisher's Summary

Criminal lawyer and all-time number-one mystery author Erle Stanley Gardner wrote close to 150 novels that have sold 300 million copies worldwide. His most popular books starred the incomparable attorney-sleuth Perry Mason.
In The Case of the Howling Dog, Arthur Cartwright, an anxious man, goes to Perry Mason to have his neighbor arrested for his vindictive and noisy dog. He is under the belief that his howling is an indication that somebody has been murdered in the neighborhood. He demands that his will be written bequeathing the estate to the lady living at the neighbor's house. However, the will is mysteriously altered by an unknown person, and Cartwright goes missing, along with the lady.

Brings back Memories

I have a stack of books/audiobooks on my desk all in the 800 plus pages/40 plus hours range. Before I started reading/listening I was looking for something a bit different to end the year with. I came across this radio dramatization of a Perry Mason Radio Show. I remember listening to Perry Mason on the radio when I was young. I thought this might be just the change I was seeking.

Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) was an attorney. He passed the Bar in 1911. He practiced in Southern California for many years. He had a large Chinese clientele and he spoke fluent Chinese. Using information from his practice, he wrote magazine stories for pulp magazines in the 1920s and 30s. He primarily wrote mysteries and westerns. When the pulps declined he went on to write novels. He wrote about 150 Perry Mason novels.

This story was made into a movie in 1934. It starred Warren Williams and Mary Aster. Williams played Mason in four movies. In this story, Perry writes a Will for Arthur Cartwright. Arthur believed a howling dog in his neighborhood indicated that someone had been murdered. Cartwright’s next-door neighbor is found murdered and Cartwright is missing.

I sort of wished that this was a replay of the original radio show rather than a dramatization by the Colonial Radio Players. But I guess sound quality would be much better in the dramatization. It was great to listen to many people playing parts rather than a single narrator reading the story. This book does make for a nice change of pace. This brought back memories of listening to plays and programs on the radio.

The book is one hour and eighteen minutes long. The performers were Jerry Robbins and the Colonial Radio Players.
