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
