Much-marred Lucille Barton is no fool. When she sees Paul Drake's ad offering $100 for information, she figures there must be a lawyer behind it somewhere. She has the information, and she needs a lawyer, so she ansers the ad. When she gets Perry Mason into her apartment, she is most generous with her undeniable charms. As Perry tells Della, "She was very friendly." Lucille needs a lawyer to talk to her second husband.She wants to work a deal so her alimony payments will continue even if she marries again. But her explanation for why she needs a gun - to protect herself from her first, who is threatening to kill her - loses its credibility when husband Number One is found in her garage with a bullet hole in his head. Join Inspector Paul Drake and super secretary Della Street as they help Perry open wide.
