Todd and Jimmy Meacham anxiously await the return of their recently widowed Aunt Nellie to the United States. Their Uncle Herbert died and they wish to pursue the planned conversion of the family estate, Hacienda Grande, into a residential subdivision that could generate $10 million in just a few years. Imagine their shock when she arrives with a new French husband, the much younger Pierre Dubois. Nellie is eccentric and flighty and refuses to talk business and they're sure Dubois is a gigolo, so they try to tempt him to stray by hiring a pretty French maid, Marie Claudel. They know they have a rival for the development in Roger Brody, who has offered $2 million in cash for the land as is. Jimmy Meacham hires his good friend, Paul Drake, to go to Paris to see what he can learn about Nellie's new husband but, when Pierre Dubois is found dead floating in the pool, it's Marie Claudel who is charged with murder. Perry Mason agrees to defend her in court and find the true killer.
Marie Claudel trails her husband to the USA from France, as he left her and illegally married a wealthy heiress. When he is killed, she is charged as everyone begs Perry to help her. He must contend with very daffy and devious people.
