Perry Mason is hired to defend Mitsou who has been charged with stealing the valuable string of natural pearls.

A Japanese woman is accused of killing for pearls.
28 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story begins in such a weird way that the viewer gets the feeling that the main character, a young Japanese woman named Mitsou Kamuri is guilty of theft when a private investigator photographs Mitsou with the goods that happen to be expensive blushing pearls. Then we learn that the entire situation appears to have been a set up by a wealthy business man that owned the pearls named Hudson Nichols. He is trying to stop Mitsou from marrying his son named Grove so he can marry a more respectable woman named Alice Carson.. But hold on to your hat because later we learn that the entire show seems to be a red herring when a a jewelry maker ends up dead in an apparent Harakiri suicide. Then, compliments of Lt Traggs office, we learn that the jewelry maker was really murdered and the entire entanglement goes back to the lovely Mitsou Kamuri which Perry will defend in court after accepting a retainer for five Yen.

We already have a plate full of suspects but more will be produced as Perry starts the investigation into the case. And when we get to the courtroom scenes, it appears that it only as mud to the waters before Perry brings us to reality with a forced confession from a person on the stand.

The first half of the show was somewhat confusion and I did not think the show could rebound. But when we learn there are more than one set of pearls the story gains interest and we are back on the edge of our seat waiting for the hammer to drop. The show ended very well and was a pleasure to watch. Good show.
