  • An oilman is accused of murdering a man who has been blackmailing his brother.

    Larry Benton has a problem: he thinks he has killed a man
    after he accused him of cheating at poker. Ben Wallace
    blackmails him over it and Larry's brother Steve is angry that Larry has forged checks in his name. He goes to
    Perry Mason and thinks his brother is being blackmailed
    by Johnny Clay and Ben Wallace. Then Steve decides to take
    matters into his own hands and goes to Johnny Clay to
    confront him. Steve finds Johnny Clay murdered, and Ben
    Wallace catches him wiping off fingerprints everywhere in
    Clay's beach house. Perry Mason then defends Steve and
    gets the real murderer. A good episode, as is any episode written by
    Gene Wang.
