Several people have considerable sums invested in the project and they stand to lose everything if it doesn't go forward. It all ends up in court with Sandra hiring Perry Mason to represent her and her grandfather. It all takes on a far more serious tone when one of the investors, Gerald Thornton, is found dead from a shotgun blast. When the police find the shotgun on her property and with her fingerprints, she is charged with Thornton's murder and Perry defends her. Written by
After being absent for the last few episodes, Raymond Burr is back full speed for this interesting mystery. We also get to see Perry in two different courtroom setting as he defends two different people on charges related to this story.
The episode begins as a land developing company needs a minor price of land owned by Spainish-American War veteran and Medal-of-Honor recipient Amos Kenesaw Mountain Keller. Amos's daughter, Sandra Keller, thought she had permission to sell the land to the company's manager Gerald Thornton but Amos changes his mind at the last minute and wants to keep his property where he grows oranges. But without the land Mr Thornton will fault on all his investments since the bank will not lend him any more money.
After Mr Thronton puts pressure on Amos to sell the land, he gets information about Amos's war record. With this information he puts pressure on his daughter, Sandra Keller, which ends in a dispute at the job site late at night.
When Mr Thornton is found dead it is believed that Amos was the murderer. But when Lt Andy Anderson find other evidence it is not long before Sandra Keller is picked up for murder and will be defended by Perry in court.
The writers do a good job of finishing up this story so that Amos is justified by his peer in the end. And with a supporting cast that includes a dog named 'Heart-attack' the mystery ends with utmost satisfaction.
