Publisher's Summary

Time and tide wait for no man - neither does Perry Mason....A mystery in the best Gardner tradition chock full of action (mighty fast), angles (inventive and voluptuous), and aqua pura (meaning watertight solution as well as H20).

On his way to finding out, Mason meets Mrs. Milfield, a barely distraught widow, and a slew of suspicious characters all intimately connected to the recently deceased, a man murdered on someone else's yacht. As the surprising scenario unravels, it takes a sharp mind like Mason's, the savvy of his secretary Della Street, and the legwork of investigator Paul Drake to pull all the clues out of the water before the case sinks like a deadweight.

©1944 Erle Stanley Gardner. Renewed 1971 by Jean Bethel Gardner and Grace Naso. (P)2016 Brilliance Audio, all rights reserved.

Nicely performed...typical Perry Mason though!

It’s a typical Perry Mason - which is good and bad depending on whether you are in the book for familiarity or not.

Enjoyed every minute of it

I've watched the Black and White CBS series of Perry Mason and the ....
I've read a few of the books.
Listening to this one while painting or tidying or just sitting listening was a delight. The readers bring the characters to life, leading you through the story until the finale.
