Ellen Robb came into Perry Mason's office with a gun in her purse. She had been framed, she said, by her gambler employer because she had refused to help fleece a customer.

The customer had dropped nearly $10,000 in the gambling establishment and then done his best to pick up Ellen. His wife, none too pleased with either shenanigan, ended up dead as a herring.

Della said Ellen was too beautiful to be trusted; Perry thought he could find out by switching guns on her - thus starting a series of explosions that nearly blast him out of court ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
tantalising on every page and brilliant -- Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent and Testimony
A master storyteller * 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 *
The only dull pages in this book are the blank ones just inside the covers * NEW YORK TIMES *
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 *
Beautiful babes, worthy opponents and fancy legal cross-stitching . . . a stellar ending * KIRKUS *
Millions of Americans never seem to tire of Gardner's thrillers * NEW YORK TIMES *
