Julia Branner insists her marriage was sabotaged by her millionaire father-in-law, who forced her to give up her baby girl for adoption. Now, years later, a young woman appears, claiming to be Julia's long-lost daughter. But Julia insists the heir-apparent is a fake - and vows to keep the family fortune from falling into the wrong hands.
Abetted by a bishop with questionable credentials, Julia plans to expose the imposter. But things take a devilish turn when the curious cleric vanishes and Julia's father-in-law is murdered. Charged with the killing, Julia turns to Perry Mason. But with overwhelming odds against him, Perry may not have a prayer....
Forget the episode of the TV series, ESG is masterful in creating a wonderful mystery. Be mindful of its being written in a much different time as there are some objectionable references to people of color but remember that ESG did practice civil rights law before turning into an author. With that said, this is truly enjoyable and Alexander Condese is masterful in his narration.
