Who was that masked woman? That was the question plaguing Perry Mason. No one loves a good mystery more than Mason - but being asked to represent a client who is concealing her identity, not to mention the particulars of her case, has given even the legendary legal eagle a case of ruffled feathers. Yet the intriguing cloak-and-dagger tactics have Perry hopelessly hooked. As for the silent siren behind the mask, is she heiress Byrl Gailord or penniless Adelle Hastings? Both women have ties to a man named Tidings, a man who may be a protector or predator. A man who could answer a lot of tough questions - if only he hadn't been murdered.
Dear Mr. Gardner, I wish you were still alive so that I could tell you how very much I love your books! Well researched, and with fascinating plots, they hold my interest until the very end.
It’s interesting to see, as well, how much the legal system in the courtroom has changed between your time of writing and today.
This particular book was absorbing both from the legal point of view and the character development, though I doubt the young not home lady made a complete, permanent change. Still, such a traumatic experience undoubtedly jolted her into better behavior and deeper thought for some time, and we can hope it also made her try to learn some self-control for the sake of her husband and marriage. :)
