Her uncle was healthy, but in order to get wealthy did she plot his demise? Is there evil in the heir?
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....

Interesting case for Mason
- Stephen W Osborne
Irritating performance ruins great story
Nothing. It's great historical reading from the 30's and the plots grip me.
N/A so far - nothing else I've read sounds like Gardner
Female parts read by Cendeses sounded like all the women were drag queens. Very distracting while trying to enjoy the story. English accent a little over the top.
None of it needed to be cut. Love what little of the Perry Mason books I've read so far. Just not impressed by them as audio books because you don't have much variety in narrators.
