5.0 out of 5 stars The Case of the Anonymous (and Horrified) Client Feb. 14 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
36th Perry Mason Mystery written in 1950. Openings of Mason Mysteries are always strange, but this book's opening is rather unusual. When Mason has a pleasant time at a night club, he receives a phone call from an anonymous woman who urgently asks his help for a seemingly not-so-urgent matter. Mason ordinarily tosses away such an anonymous request, but he is moved by the woman's frantic, horrified tone.
At last, Mason traces a highly likely woman, but she stubbornly denies that she called him. WHY? This riddle is the most interesting in this book. The answer doesn't fail my expectation. And the meaning of the "One-Eyed Witness" is not so simple such as the witness has a bad eyesight. That doesn't fail my expectation, either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sue me! July 21 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book! I hadn't read a Perry Mason book in several years (although I re-read all of Gardner's books written under the AA Fair name every couple of years), and I was caught offguard. A great plot that had some twists that really surprised me, an unusually suspenseful (for Gardner) opening, and a dash -- just a soupcon! -- of romance between Perry and Della. Mm-hmm! I think it's time Perry Mason got remade into a good movie, keeping the 1940s or 50s setting, but with new actors. The Perry in the book was tall, granite-faced, and wore a three-piece suit -- but wasn't afraid to use a little muscle now and again. Plus he knew how to keep Della warm on a cold night! Sounds like a role for Pierce Brosnan! (Can he do an American accent?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Who's that girl? Feb. 23 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A client sends over a mysterious retainer and then (apparently)denies being Perry's Client. Another man involved turns up dead, and then another, and Perry Mason's fingerprints are all over the case. Della is bemused, Tragg is furious, and Perry has to penetrate the mystery to find out what's really happened.
As stylish as ever, although with a plot perhaps slightly thinner than usual, The Case of the One-Eyed Witness is solid entertainment and a darned fine read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smash Hit Mystery!!! Dec 7 2003
Hi friends!!! This book is perhaps the best mystery i have ever read. the solution to the mystery is ingenious. No one can guess the climax. The courtroom drama is crisp and beautifully written, the cross examination is the best ever. It never slows down and moves at a break neck pace and blasts u out of your seats in the end with a huge explosion of a climax. If u dont read this one u will miss the best mystery novel. Trust me.
