The will, however, does not specify what happens to Laxter's cat--and both the caretaker and Laxter's grandson want it. When Perry Mason takes the caretaker's case, he quickly finds there's much more at stake than an old man's cat--more than a million dollars more, to be exact.

The plot twists for this mystery start appearing practically from the second page, so it is hard to describe the plot and make the description comprehensible and short at the same time. I think the former would have to be sacrificed, sorry. A crippled man came to Perry Mason with an unusual problem.

He was a caretaker for a rich guy practically all of his life, so when his boss died his will stated that the heir should keep the caretaker at his job until he is unable to perform it we are talking about just living in a house - not exactly a physically demanding job. The heir is fine with the provision, but he strongly insists the caretaker's cat - his only true friend - has to go; he even threatens to poison it in case the poor animal remains in the house.

The plot twists keep on coming. What is unusual about this case is the number of dead bodies: a typical Mason's case only involves one - this time it is more; I am not giving the exact count. I like all the twists, but the very end was a little underwhelming for all the buildup. The trademarked Mason's courtroom shenanigans that go on for pages and pages only lasted three ones here and resulted in a quick, but not quite satisfying conclusion.

BE THE FIRST TO KNOW

First published in , this is a very early entry in the Perry Mason series, back in the day when there were still cuspidors in the courtroom and when both the police and the lawyers could still cut the kind of corners that would get them arrested, disbarred and jailed in this day and age.

Perry is fresh off an exhausting murder case when Charles Ashton, a cantankerous, frail, elderly caretaker comes into the office and insists on seeing him. Curious, Perry sees the man who wants him to defend First published in , this is a very early entry in the Perry Mason series, back in the day when there were still cuspidors in the courtroom and when both the police and the lawyers could still cut the kind of corners that would get them arrested, disbarred and jailed in this day and age.

Curious, Perry sees the man who wants him to defend his cat, Clinker. Ashton's employer has recently died in a fire, but the employer's will provides that the caretaker has a job for life, looking after the place.

The Case of the Caretaker's Cat

The dead employer's grandchildren move into the home, but one of them hates the cat and insists that the caretaker get rid of it. Otherwise, the snotty grandkid says he will poison it. The will does not specify that the caretaker gets to keep the cat, who is, naturally, the caretaker's best friend in the world. Of course Perry will take the case; of course, someone will soon be murdered; of course the case will be convoluted beyond all belief; of course Clinker the Cat will turn out to be the most important witness, and of course just when Perry's client seems headed for a certain date with the hangman, Perry will pull a rabbit out of the hat and save the day.

If you've ever read any of these books, you'd expect nothing less and you won't be disappointed.

These earlier books are among my favorites of the eighty-five novels that would ultimately detail Perry's adventures. The characters and the formula were still new, and Perry had a lot more freedom to maneuver, with his skeleton keys and a lot of other devices that the law and the Bar Association prohibited him from using in later years.

The Case of the Caretaker's Cat is a quick, fun read and an enjoyable trip back to the early days of pulp fiction crime. View all 14 comments. Jan 12, Koen Kop rated it really liked it. Best of the about eight Perry Mason murder mysteries I've read so far - 3. Listened to this one on Youtube - most articulate, thus easy going for the non-native speaker - kudos to the reader.

Feb 04, Harold rated it really liked it. More Perry. Good stuff but this one was a bit complicated and far fetched. I still enjoyed it but this one 7 I'm taking them in order and the furthest out so far. Nov 24, Emilia Barnes rated it really liked it Shelves: s-ands , classic , mystery. Rather convoluted, but still extremely readable and fun.

One of the wilder rides in the Perry Mason oeuvre, and that's saying a lot. There's a green Packard, a brand new Buick, a couple of cats, and waffles. This book is so early in the series that in the last few pages it teases the next one. Mason's law clerk enters to share some details foreshadowing the case of the sleepwalker's niece footnote promises "will be published early in ".

The Case of the Caretakers Cat by Erle Stanley Gardner, First Edition

Dec 02, William rated it liked it. Actually would be 3. A fun read, but a bit too convoluted though the clues are there for the most part and littered with corpses even one which is exhumed. The writing has gotten a bit smoother, but still has clunkers like yet another woman Winifred, this time with "blazing black eyes," "a quick twist of [Della's] lithe body," and Mason speaking with "a savage impatience.

I was uncomfortable with his asking Della to fake a honeymoon, given the ambiguity of their relationship they hold hands twice in this story. Still, she handles this as well as she handles everything. And her driving is memorable aggressive. Anyway, a fast and fun read, though hardly memorable.
