Virginia Baxter is the only witness still living who can vouch for the authenticity of Lauretta Trent's will. Lauretta Trent, a wealthy widow is also living. But for how long?

About the author

Erle Stanley Gardner (1889–1970) was an author and lawyer who wrote nearly 150 detective and mystery novels that sold more than one million copies each, making him easily the best-selling American writer of his time. He ranks as one of the most prolific specialists of crime fiction due to his popular alter ego, lawyer-detective Perry Mason. A self-taught lawyer, Gardner was admitted to the California bar in 1911 and began defending poor Chinese and Mexicans as well as other clients. Eventually his writing career, which began with the pulps, pushed his law career aside. As proven in his Edgar Award–winning The Court of Last Resort, Gardner never gave up on the cases of wrongly accused individuals or unjustly convicted defendants.

    Really Erle Stanley Gardner was one very remarkable writer. I find so much to like about his works - the so interesting dedications, the byplay between Perry and his clients, the love interest of Della street, the always interesting Courtroom scenes and the never boring plots.

    He makes you think, reconsider and admire his skills. I haven’t yet found a poor listen in more than 20 novels. Who can match that?
