Storyline

Juli Eng in Los Angles learns from her grandfather in Hong Kong by telephone that he has just bought a small fortune in diamonds. He dies of natural causes so when Juli arrives for the reading of his will she looks for the diamonds but they are nowhere to be found. She contacts her lawyer Perry in Los Angeles and is convinced they were stolen by Tudor Sherwin. In fact, the manager of her grandfather's Los Angeles office, Ralph Iverson, is the thief. Iverson is taking a ship back to the USA and partners with a professional thief and smuggler, Gilbert Terrell, to smuggle the diamonds into the United States. Juli is able to get on the same ship with Sherwin and Iverson at the last minute by taking a pilot boat to the ship after it had left the dock. U.S. Customs are on the lookout for Tyrell thanks to a shipboard snoop and Perry but they can find nothing when he arrives.

Whose got the diamonds?
6 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Perry Mason came a cropper in this episode with young Irene Tsu as a client. Originally this episode starts in Hong Kong where Tsu comes to claim a legacy from her grandfather Richard Loo recently deceased. What should be there, isn't there, a cache of diamonds, but Tsu gets reason to believe they're on ship being smuggled by Jerry Oddo.

Once in San Francisco the diamonds seemingly vanish and Oddo winds up dead with a knife in his back. Tsu is arrested and good thing she's already retained Raymond Burr.

I think the writers had some trouble deciding eventually who would be the guilty party. A last minute courtroom confession really came out of left field from the perpetrator. It may have even caught Burr unawares.

Not the best from season seven.
