Goodreads Review:
Notes: The prolific Earle Stanley Gardner penned more than 80 Perry Mason novels—many while simultaneously practicing law at his office in Ventura, California. The Case of the Moth-Eaten Mink came about halfway in this remarkable series, which spanned from The Case of the Velvet Claws (1933) through The Case of the Postponed Murder (1973). This particular edition updates the gritty courtroom drama with a cover that features gauzy photography and modern (if out-of-place) typography. This post also includes a discarded playing card, found at Dunkin' Donuts while the Cowboy was reading this very book.
