Perry Mason Is The Wisest Guy Around
31 January 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

When Michael Nader is accused of murder, Raymond Burr's friend Mason Adams vouches for the ex-mobster and Perry Mason is on the case. This means, of course, that he is innocent and the murderer will confess on the witness stand. Yet when Nader tries to help out by manufacturing evidence, can even Erle Stanley Gardner's lawyer-sleuth untangle the snarled threads of this case?

It's an unusually complicated and engaging mystery, since there is never any clear alternate suspect, and the case must be investigated in court. Of course that was a standard feature of the mysteries written by Gardner in the 1930s, the TV show that Mr. Burr starred in from 1957 through 1966 and the TV movies, like this one, that ran from 1989 through Burr's death in 1993.
