Crime Fiction Alphabet: N is for Negligent Nymph

  I have almost all the Perry Mason novels by Erly Stanley Gardner. Someday I will reread the lot. Today I am posting covers of The Case of the Negligent Nymph

While Perry Mason is enjoying a moonlit canoe ride, he admires a naked bathing beauty. Little does he know he'll soon be rescuing her- and that next day he'll have to clear her of a jewlery-theft charge. But then she's suddenly charged again- this time with murder. It takes all of Perry's wiles, Della's insights, and Paul Drake's deft detecting to solve The Case of the Negligent Nymph.

Another classic mystery. I don't recall seeing this made in the TV series.

Gardner is one of my favorites. I collect them and I have read most but not all of them. Definitely a good selection for N.

I read a lot of Perry Mason mysteries when I was younger (teens and twenties, I guess), but I want to reread some of them now too. Lots of great covers here.
