Review: The Case of the Counterfeit Eye

The Case of the Counterfeit Eye
The Case of the Counterfeit Eye by Erle Stanley Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another good Perry Mason mystery, though much like the last, the ending is a bit rushed and forced. While Perry again makes it to court, it’s not in an actual trial yet – just in the preliminaries to see if there’s enough evidence to bring charges against the accused. This one has Perry doing a mess o’things he probably shouldn’t be doing, and it’s hard to understand why he wasn’t thrown in jail himself, other than to consider that it was the thirties and the law was different back then. Well-written as usual, except for the last couple of chapters which, as I’ve said, seem a bit rushed to me.
