Erle Stanley Gardner – The D.A. Takes a Chance (1948)


Golden Age
Category: One with Lawyer, Courtroom, Judge
Date Finished: March 10, 2015

This one has been on my To Be Read pile for 31 years at least, but once I finally started it only took a day to read. Probably should have started sometime ago. Sadly, there are others of this vintage on the TBR pile. Unlike the Doug Selby novel preceding this one, there is no love triangle and only Sylvia Martin, female journalist, is present. It seems that after the war, Gardner did away with much of the character business and just churned out the mysteries.
