From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
Gold mines and rodeos set the hard pace of life in Placer City. Perry is in town on business looking for an old prospector named Amos Catledge to subpoena for testimony. But it’s Just like Perry to go on a trip and end up getting involved in a totally unrelated case. He saunters into the Gold Nugget Saloon and ends up stopping a fight. Later on, one of the antagonists is murdered and the other is accused of the crime. But when Perry goes looking for clues, all hands point to the same man he came to find originally, that old prospector.
