I was able to Klingon to a copy of Bob Ingersoll's and Tony Isabella's STAR TREK novel, THE CASE OF THE COLONIST'S CORPSE. It is a very well written mystery novel and inspired me to write a courtroom drama of my own, ARTHUR & CLEOPATRA III: THE RING OF TRUTH. The detective work and courtroom drama of the original Perry Mason novels is cleverly recreated in a case in which the leader of a Klingon colony is put on trial for the murder of his human equivalent. However, the structure of the novel does hew to closely to that used in the PERRY MASON TV series, which is why I have dropped a star in this review. All in all, though the novel is a very affectionate tribute to Perry Mason's creator, the late Erle Stanley Gardner, even to the happy ending at the end, which is why I have still given it a four-star rating.
