The Case of the Lonely Heiress (Perry Mason Mysteries (Fawcett Books))

The Case of the Lonely Heiress - Erle Stanley Gardner Read the Perry Mason novel "The Case of the Lonely Heiress" by Erle Stanley Gardner. Not one of his best novels.

Mason sounds like an amateur detective who has no idea on things happening around him in this novel and not his usual confident, brilliant self. He seems to have no discerning ability that is so his style. The amateur detective work occupies nearly 3/4 th of the book. Even the court scenes that ensues is not much of a breather. The court scenes in Perry Mason novels are mostly breath taking in its brilliance, but not this one. An overall disappointment.

Rating: 2/5.
