The Case of the Sulky Girl
THE CASE OF THE SULKY GIRL was only the second of the Perry Mason books ever
written, published in September 1933. Perry, Della and Paul Drake all appear.
And for the first time, Mason's young law clerk Frank Everly. Still no
appearance by District Attorney Hamilton Burger or Lieutenant Tragg. But this
is the first Perry Mason story to feature his courtroom manipulations.
The story has a beautiful young blond with a fiery temper, Frances Celane,
being blackmailed. Her uncle and guardian, Edward Norton, won't give her any
money from her trust, so that she can pay off the blackmailer. And so before
you know it, he's dead and she's accused of his murder. She's secretly been
married, and that's the basis for the blackmail. Did her new husband do it?
He says so, but Perry suspects he's just trying to cover for his new bride.
Obviously, his client is innocent. (Aren't they always?) So just who did murder
