Pretty good stories. All I know about trials and such I got from My Cousin Vinny. The procedure in these cases is remarkably different, I am moved to research how the law has changed over the years. I would like to know more about the relationship between Perry and Della. Having watched the television series for many years, I keep visualizing the television actors as I'm reading!

Words I Had To Look Up:

...Hamilton Burger said unctuously (The Case Of The Terrified Typist, pg. 221) -- Characterized by affected, exaggerated, or insincere earnestness.
...and his defalcations would be discovered. (The Case Of The Terrified Typist, pg. 243) -- The fraudulent appropriation of funds or property entrusted to your care but actually owned by someone else
"Oh, bosh!" Hamilton Burger snapped. (The Case Of The Lucky Loser, pg 357) -- Pretentious or silly talk or writing. I thought I invented this work in sixth grade, but as it turns out...
...and a Strobe-light in the other hand... (The Case Of The Foot-Loose Doll, pg 633) -- It is a proper noun? I don't think so.


She was emotionally unstable and I believe temporarily insane. She had come to believe the world owed a living both to her and to her unborn child. It was quite in keeping with her emotional state for her to hold up a bank. -- The Case Of The Foot-Loose Doll, pg. 695.
