Publisher's Summary

Thanks to a bungled robbery at a fancy hotel, the already-married Eva Griffin has been caught in the company of a prominent congressman. To protect the politico, Eva's ready to pay the editor of a sleazy tabloid his hush money. But Perry Mason has other plans. He tracks down the phantom fat cat who secretly runs the blackmailing tabloid -only to discover a shocking scoop. By the time Mason's comely client finally comes clean, her husband has taken a bullet in the heart. Now Perry Mason has two choices: represent the cunning widow in her wrangle for the dead man's money - or take the rap for murder.

the best!!

I am a long time Erle Stanley Gardner fan. This dramatization is so true to the original Perry Mason. Jerry Robbins and the Colonial Radio Players bring this story to life with such class. Very entertaining! I listen to this story often and enjoy it more each time I listen to it. Love the Colonial Radio Theater-keep up the good work.

Not My Perry Mason

This might not be a fair review. I'm told that this version of Mr. Mason is the way Earl Stanley Gardner wrote him and, being fair, since I haven't read any of the novels in more years than I care to count, that might be true.
But, if you are looking for a story about a straight shooter, playing by the rules, lawyer's lawyer, this isn't it. This Mr. Mason subverts the system, mishandles evidence, even suggests that his client lie (subourning perjury???).
I read about a zillion books per, and I listen to just as many. I won't be listening to more of these - why waste my time on a protagonist I don't like.
Oh and I was disappointed by the performance too. No passion, no verve.

Interrupted by a loud "bang" at end of each scene

A very uncomfortable read due to the unduly loud noise every 3 or 4 minutes, used - presumably - to mark the start of a new scene. Not neded and certainly far too loud.

The narration is very good but I found the story very far fetched
