Perry Mason takes on the case of Holly Andrews who is accused of killing her ex-husband, the wealthy Kevin Steele, who owns a local radio station. Late night radio shock jock Barney Austin calls him during his show and incredibly the man is heard to be shot during the live broadcast. Holly doesn't deny being there. In fact she almost ran Perry off the road driving away from Steele's house. But there were many who might have wanted him dead. Holly was concerned because Steele was preparing legal documents to try to take their son away from her, saying she was an unfit mother due to her relationship with Dan Thorne. Steele was killed with a gun given to Holly by Thorne. An unpaid art dealer, a rival radio station station owner who was about to lose his latest star personality, Holly's friend Clara Michaels, whose husband is disabled due to Steele, and Holly's boyfriend all had their reasons to see him dead. It's left to Perry to find the real killer. Written by
