    Like other Erle Stanley Gardner episodes,this

    is a stiff episode that is only average.

    Mildred Crest is going to be married---or

    at least,that's what she thinks.When her fiancee

    tells her about embezzling money in her account

    where they work,she is forced to leave town.She

    picks up Fern Driscoll(not really her name.).

    They drive,but "Fern" pulls a gun and they have

    an accident in which Fern miraculuosly survives.

    When she arrives in Los Angeles,she assumes the

    name of Fern Driscoll,but gets into trouble over

    that with a private investigator.Later,she stabs

    some intruder and when that private investigator

    dies of a stab wound,she is charged.Mason identifies the woman killed in the car accident as Brenda Scobey,who escaped from a girl's

    detention center.Fern Driscoll is a patient at

    a hospital with amnesia and when the senator's

    son jars her memory,she remembers again.Mildred

    is then cleared when the private investigator's

    wife confesses.

    An average episode.moreless
