Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson runs the Priority Homicide Division of the LAPD with an unorthodox style. Her innate ability to read people and obtain confessions helps her and her team solve the city's toughest, most sensitive cases.
Judy Bryant is upset when she learns that a valuable tract of land she inherited has been claimed by a land developer. The original land survey was conducted some 15 years before by her step-father, Amos Bryant, who abandoned them soon after. The root of the problem is that the nearby river is far narrower today than it was at the time of the survey. Judy consults Perry Mason who tells her that Amos' testimony will be essential if she is to win her case against the developer. She locates Amos and he agrees to testify only if she pays him $10,000. When he collects the money however, the package explodes, killing him. Judy is charged with his murder and Perry defends her. Written by
A really good cast of top flight character players distinguishes this Perry Mason episode by their presence. Raymond Burr is in the desert country on a land boundary dispute when his Paris Hilton of a client decides to take matters into her own hands. So now Sarah Marshall is his client in a criminal as well as a civil case.
Not too many bombs kill Perry Mason victims, but that's what happens here to Robert Lowery who says that he'll swing his testimony in favor of his stepdaughter Marshall. So the dumb girl gets $10,000.00 from a friend of her mother June Vincent played by Bruce Bennett. Only instead of a payoff in the package, there's a time bomb instead.
Besides these folks such familiar faces as Harry Carey, Jr., Paul Fix, J. Pat O'Malley, Philip Ober, and Kelly Thordsen are in this cast. And when Mason exposes the murderer in court, a twenty year old cold case is confessed to in the process.
I guess Perry was having a two for one day.
