From the interior:

Nadine Farr Was Charged With Murder!

And the case looked hopeless.

She had motive, means and opportunity.

And, during a truth-serum test which she had consented to take, she had stated clearly that she had poisoned Mosher Higley.

It was freely predicted in legal circles that, in the case of the People of the State of California versus Nadine Farr, Perry mason’s defense didn’t have a leg to stand on. The odds were ten to one against him.

Even Perry Mason was inclined to agree – until his alert eye spotted a fact everyone else had overlooked.
