Publisher's Summary

The two women in Perry Mason's office were a cat-and-mouse combination. And at first glance it seemed that little Mrs. Davenport was the mouse. But her husband said she was trying to kill him...that she had already murdered once and would not hesitate to strike again. Mason's own curiosity made him take the case, and before long he was wanted for questioning by several different officers of the law. Question: was Myra Davenport a quiet little person, who enjoyed nothing better than pottering about in her garden? Or was she a poisoner, a minx, a modern Lucrezia Borgia? A superb courtroom expose climaxes Perry Mason's brilliant detection.

One of the better Mason books

The story is a page turner and at times down right hysterical. When Mason and Della are in their clients husbands office with his secretary and a cop, the dialogue will have you in stitches!

Enjoy!

good story poor performance

Paul Drake sounds like Della Street...Della Street sounds weak and like a maid with an IQ of 90 max. all the other characters are rushed and just not very good. it would have been better if it had just been read aloud.
