Lucas Tolliver asks Perry for a will for his wife-to-be which seems odd. When a dating service contacts Perry about Lucas, Perry looks deeper into his history. Lucas isn't what he says he is and is blamed when his new wife is killed.

Lucas Tolliver uses the services of a matrimonial service to find himself the perfect bride. Alice and Guy Munford use computers to find the perfect mate for their clients and they've introduced Tolliver to ranch owner Millicent Barton. From all appearances, Tolliver is something of a charlatan who inherited considerable wealth from a previous wife to the exclusion of his stepson Larry Dunlap who received nothing. When Tolliver asks Perry upon the recommendation of their common friend, Terrence Clay, to draw up a will for his wife-to-be that will make Tolliver the only beneficiary of her estate, Perry is surprised. Alice Munford is concerned, however, when she reviews Tolliver's file and can't imagine why her husband Guy ever approved him as a client in the first place. Alice and Guy visit Perry as Alice thinks Millicent might sue them, which now has Perry quite concerned.

A Rogue for a client
18 April 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In The Case Of The Hasty Honeymooner it looked for a while like the Perry Mason paradigm has shifted. For a while it looked Raymond Burr would be defending a guilty man in the person of roguish Noah Beery, Jr.

Beery comes to Burr via a reference from Dan Tobin who became a series regular in its last season as a restaurant owner at whose establishment the series regulars would unwind. The way that Val Bisoglio's place was for the Quincy regulars. Beery was in Tobin's outfit during World War II and had a reputation as an operator.

Anway Beery comes into Mason's office and asks him to draw up a pair of wills for his wife to leave each other their property. But Beery has no wife or at least one who's living. In fact he's had two previously both deceased. And a matrimonial matchmaking agency headed by Hugh Marlowe and K.T. Stevens has matched up Beery and Cathy Downs for an upcoming wedding.

And on the wedding night Downs is poisoned and Beery is in a jackpot and I have to say looking real good for the deed. It's quite a complex bit of business, but of course Beery the rogue is really innocent.

Can it be any other way on Perry Mason?
