From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
Charles Stewart Brent, the owner of Perry’s office building, unfairly takes the rap for a murder to cover for his young wife, Anne. Charles has known her for only two weeks, but has already been threatened by a blackmailer to expose her “tainted” past. Now he suspects her of murder, but loves her too much to see her in jail.
When Perry proves that Anne is innocent, it’s such a relief that the lawyer may be in for a rent reduction.
