The resolution comes suddenly. Part of the explanation is very clever, worthy of Erle Stanley Gardner thirty years earlier.

The resolution comes suddenly. But another part, which I guessed early on, is rather hokey. Recurring themes: young man is neer-do-well.

Perry Mason is asked by Ellen Adair to deal with the privacy invasion of a local newspaper now threatening to exhume her whereabouts-she had won a beauty contest but disappeared shortly thereafter to have an illegitimate baby. His client is not altogether honest with him and circumstantial evidence accumulates against her when a two million dollar will is also exposed.

Gardner Erle Stanley. He intimated that someone had been knocking down-only ringing up a part of the sales. He threatened to get private detectives on the job and said everybody was going to have to take a lie-detector test. I take it he hasn't won any popularity contests with the help," Mason said. Not recently," Ellen Robb said dryly. And somebody has been knocking down on him?"

Were you- she asked, that is - were you-. Anyway, I voted for her, and so did the other two judges. She was elected queen of the outfit.

Were you- she asked, that is - were you-. You mean am I the man in the case? Yes. That was three years ago. She’s put on weight since then, but at that time - well, she bad a good figure.

Mason glanced at his wristwatch and at the papers on which he was working. Della Street, looking at the appointment book, said hopefully, ― You have twenty- eight minutes until your next appointment. ― I wanted to have this legal point digested before that time, ‖ Mason said, then shrugged. Oh, well, I guess we have to take care of the urgent matters.

A typical Perry Mason mystery. Solving it would end up being the near cornerstone of his career. The court process was interesting and the end something that sadly couldn't be shown on TV for the series.

Another to add to my abundant list of Perry Mason mystery which I collect along with the old tv shows.

The Case of the Queenly Contestant

This book is dedicated to Professor Leon Derobert for his work in the field of legal medicine. Legal medicine is important to the detection of crime, such as not confusing an entry wound of a gunshot with an exit wound. Death by poisoning can be mistaken for a natural death.

Circumstantial evidence is best only when it is correctly interpreted, says Perry Mason. Ellen Adair visits Perry Mason for advice on a legal question: her right to privacy. Twenty years ago she won a beauty contest in a mid-west state. Now her hometown newspaper is looking to publish a story about her, and she doesn’t want this publicity. Perry Mason calls the newspaper’s editor and orders him to kill this story because it would be an invasion of privacy after the event is no longer current news. But there is a hint of further complications. The next day a private investigator calls on Perry; he too is investigating this beauty contest winner and track her down. Perry quickly devises a scheme to mislead and distract this person; he had a hunch that something’s wrong. They use a decoy who resembles Perry’s client. This works, and draws out the inquiring investigators. Later Perry and Della meet Ellen Adair to get more information, and truth. But not all of it yet!

And so another complex puzzle of a case begins. Soon there’s a dead body, and the arrest of Ellen Adair. Evidence accumulates against her. The events in this 1967 novel show Erle Stanley Gardner keeps up with the changing morals of the times. As ever, the book shows why you should never lie to your lawyer. If there is a reasonable explanation for circumstantial evidence other than guilt, the jury must acquit if the case depends entirely on circumstantial evidence. This 1967 book explains why finding a bullet on a stretcher prevents it from being connected to a body. Perry’s client is exonerated, and may live happily ever after. But the happy ending seems to be tacked on.

In other novels Erle Stanley Gardner warned of the “Beauty Contest” racket where young woman would be used to promote local events then given a one-way ticket to Hollywood. Without training and experience they could soon become part of a service industry.
