Since the death of his wife, wealthy industrialist B.K. Doran has been living the high life. Expensive clothes, fine meals, exotic travel are all part of the package. It also includes an very attractive lawyer and companion in the form of Leslie Ross. Doran's son-in-law Edward Lewis is concerned about bad business decisions which include buying an obsolete plant in South America. He's also convinced Doran has also misappropriated company funds as well and threatens to expose him at the next stockholders meeting. Lewis has even consulted Perry Mason on the matter who warns him to make sure his evidence of wrongdoing is solid. When Doran is killed however, Lewis is charged with murder and Perry defends him.
