Publisher's Summary

Compared to a juicy murder trial, a case of feuding neighbors isn't exactly Perry Mason's cup of tea. But Arthur Cartright insists that Mason is the only one who can muzzle the howling hound that's driving Cartright crazy. But Perry doesn't realize just how crazy until he meets his client's neighbor. Clinton Foley says Cartright is barking up the wrong tree with his canine companion - and swears that the man is dangerously insane to boot.

Mason's not the type to cop out on a client - but when Cartright draws up a will that leaves everything to his neighbor's wife, even Perry has to wonder if the man has slipped from anger into madness. That's why he pays a personal visit to Clinton Foley's house, where he finds one missing wife, one poisoned dog, and one corpse....

Great Perry Mason Mystery

These early Earl Stanley Gardner “Perry Mason” novels are extraordinary. There are some legal and cultural anachronisms but if you allow for the early 20th Century writing and setting during Prohibition America, the legal and cultural issues are understandable. Some nomenclature used is offensive by 21st century standards but were common during the period. I will never want this book nor any others modified for current political correctness. Such people who desire to revisions “Huckleberry Finn” or ban “To Kill A Mockingbird” have minds of low caliber that do not wish to remember history. This is a well written mystery and a historical document.
