Lyn Reviews Erle Stanley Gardner’s The Case of the Gilded Lily
The Case of the Gilded Lily by Erle Stanley Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’m really enjoying these vintage mysteries about a courtroom expert Perry Mason written by a lawyer Erle Stanley Gardner. I’m happy that they are releasing these as ebooks now. I’ve long been a fan of Perry Mason and am happy to say this continues. In this case, I had to skim past the first few chapters because I just can’t put up with people (like the “future” defendant in this case) who lets himself get in over his head in a situation.
This continues even after his loyal secretary drags him to Perry Mason’s office. A few times–I along with Perry–was ready to “bean” the guy over the head (whatever that means!) Anyway as usual Perry outsmarts not only the DA but also the culprit AND his own client and solves it all and brings it off with flair. Perry in his summation to Della smooths over one character’s motives which I clearly saw from early chapters, but that’s okay. Perry is always a gentleman!
