Series: Perry Mason

Summary :

One long-legged model is Stephanie Falkner, who wants to partner with Mason's client Homer Garvin to make George Casselman, who probably killed her father, pay through the nose for the stock she inherited. The second long-legged model is Eva Elliott, Stephanie's former rival for Homer Garvin, Jr., who thinks Stephanie is much too interested in her boss, Homer Senior. The third long-legged model is Dawn Joyce, the Vegas showgirl Homer Jr. unexpectedly brings home...as his wife. Exactly how this situation led to the murder of George Casselman is the mystery Mason and associates must solve, while Perry tricks Lt. Tragg with fancy pistol work to keep his apparently guilty clients out of hot water. But imagine Mason's surprise when the gun he plants to decoy the police turns out to be the murder weapon!

The book is dedicated in the Foreword to forensics expert Michael Anthony Luongo, M.D., reflecting the author's lively interest in the use of forensic medicine in crime-solving.
