The Case of the Lonely Heiress      by Erle Stanley Gardner

Marilyn Marlow has inherited a good deal of money from her mother. But the money originated with another will--that of her mother's wealthy employer. Now his relatives are contesting the will, and it's Rose Keeling, the key witness to its signing, whose mind they will need to sway.

When Rose is murdered, sleuthing lawyer Perry Mason must navigate a twisted case involving a personal ad that casts a cloud of suspicion over his client, Miss Marlow, in this mystery in Edgar Award-winning author Erle Stanley Gardner's classic, long-running series.
