From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
When Nellie Meacham returns from Europe with a new husband, her relatives are surprised, to say the least. Nellie had left for the continent with her ailing first husband, who died suddenly during the trip. Nellie’s new husband is a very young, very handsome Frenchman named Pierre. Her family immediately hates him, suspecting that he has married Nellie for her money. As part of a bizarre scheme to get rid of Pierre, the family hires a young French maid. But, unknown to them, the maid, Marie, is actually Pierre’s jilted wife. As usual, events turn ugly. Pierre is clubbed unconscious and then drowned in the swimming pool. Perry arrives at the house to deliver a message from Paul Drake, but he sees Marie run from the scene, discovers the body in the pool, and then finds that Marie has stolen his car.
