A suspicious personal ad conceals nefarious intent - and eventually lands in the lap of Perry Mason.

It appears that Marilyn Marlow inherited a small fortune from her mother, who got the sum from her wealthy employer. But now the old man's relatives are contesting the will, putting Marilyn on shaky ground.
Whoever sways Rose Keeling, the key witness to the signing of the will, is sure to be the victor. Enter the personal ad. Marilyn intends to find Rose a Mr. Right in order to get the goods on her. But when Rose is murdered, Perry Mason sets out to find a gentleman caller who had a date with death ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
You know Perry Mason...and that is what makes the Perry Mason stories worthwhile * NEW YORK TIMES *
With Perry Mason, Erle Stanley Gardner introduced to American letters the notion of the lawyer as a hero - and a detective - which were remarkable innovations. He even gave defence lawyers a good name to boot. His Mason books remain tantalising on every page and brilliant -- Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent and Testimony
Kingpin among the mystery writers' * NEW YORK TIMES *
Gardner has a way of moving the story forward that is almost a lost art: great stretches of dialogue alternate with lively chunks of exposition, and the two work together perfectly, without sacrificing momentum * BOOKLIST *
For fans of classic hard-boiled whodunits, this is a time machine back to an exuberant era of snappy patter, stakeouts, and double-crosses * LA TIMES *
