A lawyer is sucked into a couple's hostile divorce in this mystery with "a stellar ending" from the original detective series that inspired the HBO show (Kirkus Reviews). Edward Garvin is a very successful businessman with a very unhappy ex-wife--who wants his money. So Garvin calls on lawyer Perry Mason to protect his company from her schemes, and ensure the divorce they'd gotten in Mexico is actually finalized. But when Garvin's former spouse is struck down by a killer, Mason's client becomes the chief suspect. Fortunately, the attorney "comes up with dazzling answers" to the mystery . . . (The New York Times). This whodunit is part of Edgar Award-winning author Erle Stanley Gardner's classic, long-running Perry Mason series, which has sold three hundred million copies and serves as the inspiration for the HBO show starring Matthew Rhys and Tatiana Maslany. DON'T MISS THE NEW HBO ORIGINAL SERIES PERRY MASON, BASED ON CHARACTERS FROM ERLE STANLEY GARDNER'S NOVELS, STARRING EMMY AWARD WINNER MATTHEW RHYS.
About the Author
Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) was the top selling American author of the twentieth century, primarily due to the enormous success of his Perry Mason Mysteries, which numbered more than eighty and inspired a half-dozen motion pictures and radio programs, as well as a long-running television series starring Raymond Burr. Having begun his career as a pulp writer, Gardner brought a hard-boiled style and sensibility to his early Mason books, but he gradually developed into a more classic detective novelist, providing clues to allow astute readers to solve his many mysteries. For over a quarter of a century, he wrote more than a million words a year under his own name as well as numerous pseudonyms, the most famous being A. A. Fair.
