From The Perry Mason TV Show Book (Revised)
A beautiful but naive secretary, Janice Wainwright, is only carrying out her boss’s orders when she unloads a briefcase carrying more than $100,000 in a train station locker. Then she waits for her boss’s ex-wife at a train station in Las Vegas, but Tragg arrives instead with a murder rap, accusing her of killing her boss, Morley Thielman.
It seems that Thielman’s former partner, Cole B. Troy, saw a woman’s shadow through his (Troy’s) office window move along the sidewalk behind Thielman shortly before the murder. Troy says the sexy silhouette belonged to Janice. Although Tragg brags that Janice has been arrested outside Perry’s legal jurisdiction*, our man gets the case anyway and causes Burger to blow his top once again at some typical Mason maneuvers in the courtroom.
