Gladys Doyle's luxurious ski weekend, courtesy of her employer, takes a sharp turn for the worse when she heads home on Sunday. Heavy storms force her to seek shelter with a surly stranger in a lonely mountain cabin. Next morning there's a dead man in the bedroom, the mysterious host has disappeared, and poor Gladys's fingerprints are all over the murder weapon.

Her desperate plight sends Perry Mason ice-fishing in dangerous waters—for a catch that includes a silk scarf curiously decorated with monkeys, a pristine teakettle, a bodyguard who takes care of his clients permanently, and a vicious bottom feeder hungry for prey...

I am admittedly a big fan of Perry Mason and of course ESG the author. This book is one of those "can't put down" books. I also watched the TV episode. Very close to the book. I recommend this book highly. I finished it at 12:30 in the morning as it was that engrossing.
