Parts of this recording are out of order

Somewhere around the one hour mark, (Perry and his client are at the motel) the final chapter has been inserted. After a couple of minutes, the story resumes and ends before the final chapter begins. Since it is already a rather confused plot, the first time around it was REALLY confusing!

Book chapters read out of order

Would you try another book from Erle Stanley Gardner and/or Perry King?

Don't bother with this book, half way through the ending is read.

Any additional comments?

This book should be pulled until it is corrected. I would like a refund.

Don't waste your money

What would have made The Case of the Beautiful Beggar better?

The end is in the middle, then you get the 4th section and then the 3rd section. Horribly confusing.

Classic Perry Mason/Bad recording

I gave the stars based on the story....which is classic Perry Mason and can't be beat. However, audible really should remove the recording or get it fixed. As a previous reviewer stated, the order is somehow messed up. Suddenly about an hour from the end, the last segment including the "thank you for listening" ending are inserted and then it jumps back to the point where it left off. Very annoying...but not the book or narrator's fault, so I didn't mark it down for that. The narrator was okay, just didn't sound like Perry Mason to me, but maybe I'm simply expecting Raymond Burr.
