Storyline

Contractor George Andrews is having trouble with building inspectors on his construction site who tell him to ask Wilfred Borden for his help. Borden styles himself as being in public relations but is in fact a political fixer who won't hesitate to bribe officials who are giving clients a hard time. He is also an amateur photographer who works with models. They agree to a deal but as Andrews leave Borden's home, he's nearly run off the road by another car. He rushes to help and finds an attractive young woman lying on the grass. He gives her a ride home and then goes to Perry Mason's office for legal advice. Concerned that someone else might have been in the car, they head to Borden's house to try to find her but are locked out by dogs. Perry quickly determines the woman Andrews picked up was not who she said she was and the next day they learn that Borden is dead. Andrews is charged with murder when the police find the murder weapon in his car and Perry defends him. Written by garykmcd

I Love I Love My Calendar Girl
26 April 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

You know that when the participant in an automobile accident reaches first for his lawyer before calling the cops to report the accident we know there's a problem. That's what John Anderson does in this Perry Mason episode after he hits a car where the woman looks dazed and then disappears on him.

Anderson's reason for not reporting the accident is a conundrum for him at least. He just came from the estate of a well known political fixer. Anderson is the construction trade and the building inspectors have descended upon like locusts. In that most bribable of professions fixer George Neisse can make them go away, but very discreetly.

But then Neisse turns up shot to death and Anderson has a real jackpot on his hands. Good thing he's already retained Perry Mason.

My ratings of a Perry Mason mystery rise and fall on whether and how easily I can spot the real murderer. In this case it was pretty easy because the perpetrator was real shifty and declined to help with Raymond Burr's investigation for his client.

In only a preliminary hearing Hamilton Burger's case falls apart at the seams. How that man kept his job as District Attorney is truly a mystery.
