About the Author

Erle Stanley Gardner (1889-1970) was an author and lawyer who wrote nearly 150 detective and mystery novels. Awarded the honor of Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1962 and hailed by Evelyn Waugh as "the best American writer," he ranks as one of the most prolific specialists of crime fiction due to his popular alter ego, lawyer-detective Perry Mason. A self-taught lawyer, Gardner was admitted to the California bar in 1911 and began defending poor Chinese and Mexicans as well as other clients. Eventually his writing pushed his law career aside, but as proven in his Edgar Award-winning The Court of Last Resort, Gardner never gave up on the cases of wrongly accused individuals or unjustly convicted defendants.
