Thanks to a bungled robbery at a fancy hotel, the already-married Eva Griffin has been caught in the company of a prominent congressman. To protect the politico, Eva's ready to pay the editor of a sleazy tabloid his hush money. But Perry Mason has other plans. He tracks down the phantom fat cat who secretly runs the blackmailing tabloid—only to discover a shocking scoop. By the time Mason's comely client finally comes clean, her husband has taken a bullet in the heart. Now Perry Mason has two choices: represent the cunning widow in her wrangle for the dead man's money—or take the rap for murder.

This Perry is much "edgier" than the iconic TV version and closer to Erle Stanley Gardner's original. He's not afraid of getting dirty nor is he above stretching the truth when it suits his needs. I surpirsed that this case was actually solved without the "obligatory" courtroom scene.
The acting of the main characters was top notch, although one or two of the supporting cast were a little weak. Don't be scared off by the the language advisory. There were a couple of instances of the "d" word.
Overall, an entertaining story and I look forward to listening to more from the Colonial Radio Players.
