      Parrots became strongly associated with pirates. No modern pirate dares calls himself such without a parrot sitting on his shoulder. Other traditional accessories like a pegleg and an eye patch are optional, but the bird is a must. I think Long John Silver from Treasure Island started the trend. This tale however is not about pirates. The most interesting part about the story is that the original development has little in common with what happened afterwards thanks to traditional for Perry Mason [...]

      The fourteenth Perry Mason novel (published in 1939) opens when a new client comes to Perry's office. The client's father has been murdered, and the client fears that his father's new wife may attempt to cheat him out of his inheritance. (For some reason, there seem to be a number of Perry Mason books in which an older man has remarried to a woman who seemed very loving and terrific before the marriage but who then turns out to be a greedy, unpleasant shrew, usually with greedy, grasping, unplea [...]

      Ever since I watched every original Perry mason TV episode except, The Case of the Shoplifter's Shoe, I have wanted to read the books. When i found that some of them were available via Kindle Unlimited I was thrilled and dove right in. Truth be told this isn't a 5 * story, but I was so happy to read it I was a 5 * story to me. Perry Mason in the books is a bit more jocular and less serious than in the show. Della Street is much less formed and a bit of a watering pot. The plot of this story is r [...]

      Admittedly, the last time I read a Perry Mason case was about twenty-some years ago. I know I liked it and couldn’t put it down. I don’t remember the title, but I do remember Perry and Della driving in her car on a winding California road. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised that they do that in every Perry Mason story. Perry and Della, Perry and Paul, Paul and Della-- Yes, even in “The Perjured Parrot,” the fourteenth Perry Mason book. The pace moved along quite well in “Parrot,” and [...]

      Interesting how reader ratings vary on this one. I am unusual in not being burdened with clear memories of the TV show, which I did indeed watch once or twice. And I lack the perspicacity of another reader or two who found the clues transparent. So this one worked pretty well for me, even though it is a considerably more complex plot that the other Perry Masons I have read so far.There are a few departures from previous volumes. There is only a coroner's inquest rather than a court case, and thu [...]

      A fight ensues between between the son and the widow of Fremont Sabin after his death. The heart of the question is did he divorce her before his death? Sabin's will has been destroyed leaving Perry Mason in a difficult situation.

      A very interesting case! This is one case where it is not exactly a jury or court hearing, but one with minimum technicalities. This is where Mason clears the case at the coroner's inquest itself.A very interesting thing is, that it has most things in double! I guess Gardner wanted to confuse the case as much as possible.All in all, interesting read.

      Prolific Erle Stanley Gardner wrote this in 1939, so Perry Mason, smooth suave cool collected handsome long-legged lawyer would smoke. Emotional lovely secretary Della Street would be compliant with steak dinners, dancing, and hiding out suspects in her apartment. Resourceful PI Paul Drake would have eyes, ears, Yankee guns, and strong arms everywhere. The series has stock cast, revolves around suspect, details of crime. Like real Gardner, fictional Perry demands the trickiest challenges, mostly [...]

      "Remember this, that most of the wire-tapping these days is done by the police". "Why the police?" Mason asked."Oh, I don't know. Of course they figure that laws don't apply to them. You'd be surprised to know how extensively they do tap telephone lines and listen in on conversations. It's almost a matter of investigative routine". - 1939Erle Stanley Gardner knows people and the result is that his characters, though they would be over a hundred years old today (2015) are types we know and may in [...]

      Who would have thought that there could be a full length mystery with the central character being a parrot? Erle Stanley Gardener obviously did, for he has produced 'The Case of the Perjured Parrot', which does just that and it is a good and relatively convincing storyline throughout.There's a marriage that doesn't appear to be all it purports to be, a family saga bubbling away, a totally unexplained murder, a somewhat naive librarian, some misguided police officers and to cap it all a parrot, [...]

      This is the first Perry Mason novel that I have read. It is impossible not to have Raymond Burr in mind while reading, but the differences between the original Mason and Burr's Mason are interesting. The attorney on the page is more impatient, more driven, more coarse. In other words, more like a '30s potboiler and less like a '50s TV character. Who'd've thought? Not that Gardner's work is mere potboiler. Anyhow, this novel is interesting in that there is no "courtroom scene," although there is [...]

      Mystery - LegalNeeding a book published in 1939 to complete a challenge, this title appeared -- Perfect!My Mom was a big Perry Mason fan, and we watched every episode with her. As an adult, I watched the old black & white reruns, the updated versions of Perry Mason with a different, younger Paul Drake.I was surprised the author was writing Perry Mason books (85 in all) so far back (1939). This one was very good, multi-layered, intriguing characters, a scheming, nasty woman as the rich deceas [...]

      Perry Mason books are a bit like a box of cookies. You start off thinking you'll just have one (cookie/chapter). But then it's goes down so easy that you decide to have just one more. Pretty soon the whole box/book is done, and you're left lying there confused and delirious from your binge.This was a pretty interesting case, with a parrot that kept naming the murderer. I can't really go into more detail without spoilers. There was one particularly interesting twist at the end I didn't see coming [...]

      Having grown up in the 50's & 60's watching Perry Mason on TV, it is next to impossible to read a Perry Mason book with visualizing Raymond Burr as Perry or Barbara Hale as Della Street, his confidential secretary. Not that it is bad; I, as many of my generation, loved the TV series (and I still do). During the mid-1950s, amazingly the Perry Mason novels were selling at the rate of twenty thousand copies a day. There have also been six motion pictures based on Erle Stanley Gardner's famous l [...]

      What a pleasure it was to read Perry Mason! I've always love the classics; Sherlock Holmes, Charlie Chan, the Thin Man with Nick and Nora Charles. I've seen all the videos, but reading the stories jacks up the suspense.

      Not one of the best, but I always love Perry, Della, and Paul. Lt. Tragg and Ham Burger aren't in this one, which (I think) is #14 in the series.

      As The Breaking Point was my last Mary Roberts Rinehart book of the year, The Case of the Perjured Parrot is my last Erle Stanley Gardner book of the year. Which means, for now, it's time to bid a farewell to Perry Mason. Hopefully he will be around next year as well, but if not, I will have this and the other books I have read over the last two years, to console me.Little know fact about me, I hate birds.

      This is the fourteenth Perry Mason novel, written in 1939. It is one of the absolute best. The earliest novels have a distinct "film noir" feel. By 1939, Gardner was transitioning into his mature period, when most of the best ones were written. The mood is different: Gardner (and his alter ego Mason) are no longer the angry fighter; he is more mature and reflective, with a warmer style. Later on, after the TV series became a hit, the books became more mechanical in tone, with few descriptive phr [...]

      In the Case of the Perjured Parrot, an eccentric millionaire was found dead in a mountain cabin - shot in the chest and his parrot Casanova loose from its cage. The story revolves around his widow and his son’s battle over his assets with Mason and detective Paul Drake looking into the man’s curious dealings. As the parrot in the cabin is discovered to be fake, a foul-mouthed imposter planted by the murderer, the real Casanova is found in the house of one Helen Monteith, repeatedly squawking [...]

      My father was interested in reading the very first Perry Mason mystery and we think this was it. (Ryan pointed out to me - I don't know Ryan, but he seems to know what he's talking about - that the first Perry Mason was The Case of the Velvet Claws.) He pointed out to me that the language is different, but he couldn't quite say how. I think it reads like a radio script myself. Published in 1939, there's a quote which seems descriptive of today's economy."You might be interested in his economic p [...]

This is another case for Perry Mason and his usual staff: Della Street, his secretary, and Paul Drake, a detective that Mason uses for gathering information on cases. This one concerns the murder of a wealthy industrialist in his mountain cabin. He was in the middle of a divorce from his wife, and, thinking that it was final, had married a librarian with whom he had fallen in love on a fast trip to Mexico. What makes the cas [...]

      When a recluse millionaire is found murdered in his fishing cabin, Perry Mason is contacted by the victim’s son to represent his interests. A blue jay, wire, deserted cabin and a mysterious woman all tie together to lead the reader on a memorable forensic journey. As the circumstantial evidence gathered, like clay pigeons on a white picketed fence, against the spinster librarian Helen Monteith, Perry Mason prepares to shoot them down, one at a time. When compared to novels of a more recent dat [...]

      I had to add the photograph. The book was originally published in 1939, and there is a very subtle reference to the possibility we will be entered a war. There was a beautifully written scene where Perry and Della are out in the mountains at a cabin, breaking up peanut brittle to give the peanuts to blue jays, and they are diving in for treats. Perry is relaxed and enjoying the activity and wonders if some day (as Erle Stanley Gardner must have wished) to retire and engage in such days. A parrot [...]

Was his marriage legal to the second one? Why did he have two different names?These are some of the questions that come about in this case when Charles Sabin asks Perry Mason to find the murderer of Fremont Sabin.Perry, Della and Paul, once again find, themselves untangling the many threads that form this web of mystery [...]
