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.

Better Reading

Feel badly saying I didn't like the narrator nor the voices of the character, it is just the TV version is so strongly embedded into my being that I can not depart from it. Raymond Burr is how Perry Mason sounds. When you read the book you hear those voices from the actors on the television, even if some of the characterizations are a little off from the screenplay. It is a shame too because I won't ever enjoy listening to all the other Perry Mason books on Audible.
