Although this book had not been fully completed at the time of Erle Stanley Gardner's death, it doesn't seem to lack anything for that. It has a humourous setting, when the purchaser of a newly built property finds that the ex-wife of the property's previous owner has moved into half of the house claiming it as her own - and has strung a barbed-wire fence down the middle.
While the two protagonists manage to settle their differences, a murder is committed in their midst and they are the perfect suspects.
Great detective story, and the humour of the "divided" house is used to great effect. It was also great to see Mason getting his fingers burned slightly by Lt. Tragg.
Definitely ranks among the best of the Perry Mason mysteries - if you liked any of the others then this is sure to find you reading all the way to the end.

Yet another classic from the master of courtroom drama in true gardner tradition. Perry mason with his attractive secretary,Della Street and the legendary paul drake crack yet another murder mystery.
Perry mason's rhetoric to judge Goodwin with respect to the link between a criminal lawyer and a judge dealing in family causes is excellent.
