Tall, heavy-set, dignified and handsome, Frank Patton was a promoter. He was also a crook. His racket of running contests for girls with beautiful legs was technically within the law, and gullible, small-town chambers of commerce were his victims. There were complaints, but no prosecutions. Frank was a very careful man. But when Perry Mason finally caught up with him, Frank Patton was a very dead man...

Erle Stanley Gardner was extremely prolific. In addition to other works, he wrote 82 Perry Mason novels, dictating at least one, but usually two, every year. By his own admission, he was not a great stylist, but he knew how to plot, and, hence, to entertain. This book is the third novel in the Perry Mason series, and the fifth that I have read. Having read other Perry Mason novels, some of Gardner's descriptions and dialogue were repetitive and wore thin, but what a plot! Erle Stanley Gardner is the master! His plots are utterly fascinating and keep my mind in overdrive. I can never figure out how the story is going to end. There is no sex and violence, Mason solves crimes by using his wits. Gardner gets the law right most of the time, but Mason is really as much a detective as he is a lawyer, so you have to suspend your disbelief sometimes. (I practiced law for 30 years and never met a lawyer like Perry Mason!) I still intend to read the entire Perry Mason series in the order that they were published. I have found a treasure hidden in plain sight!
