Perry Mason: The Case of the Bogus Books

Joseph Kraft seems to be a harmless bookseller, but appearances decieve: Kraft earns thousands a year peddling forgeries of rare first edition books to unsuspecting marks! When Kraft dies, apparently the victim of a broken gas valve, the police soon suspect murder, and they charge Ellen Carter, one of Kraft's employees. But Perry Mason isn't convinced and comes to her defense.
