Daphne Shelby, lately returned from a tour of the Orient, was now homeless, and nearly penniless but for a $125,000 check—that she couldn't cash. The man she knew as her uncle had sent her a hasty message aboard ship: "Don't come home. Get in touch with Perry Mason immediately...and be prepared for a shock." Greedy relatives had institutionalized her benefactor, and seized his assets...would they balk at murder?
