Criminal lawyer and all-time number-one mystery author Erle Stanley Gardner wrote close to 150 novels that have sold 300 million copies worldwide. His most popular books starred the incomparable attorney-sleuth Perry Mason.

In The Case of the Howling Dog, Arthur Cartwright, an anxious man, goes to Perry Mason to have his neighbor arrested for his vindictive and noisy dog. He is under the belief that his howling is an indication that somebody has been murdered in the neighborhood. He demands that his will be written bequeathing the estate to the lady living at the neighbor's house. However, the will is mysteriously altered by an unknown person, and Cartwright goes missing, along with the lady.

Listener Opinions

    " My first Perry Mason story. Perry Mason takes the investigation into his own hands, as usual, and manipulates the evidences... which I didn't expect of him. Interesting the "lessons" about the role of a lawyer. Gardner was a lawyer, was he not? I must go look that up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylynn | 1/1/2014

    " This was such a fun read. I'm definitely going to try other mysteries by Gardner. It was quite different from the tv show. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sergey | 12/10/2013

    " I wasn't as entertained by this mystery as by others by Gardner. Not bad, otherwise, but not great either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Huma | 9/24/2013

    " Its one of the books where the line between legal and illegal is really difficult to see, and Mason is really sticking out his neck to prove this client innocent of murder... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent Darlage | 9/6/2013

    " Interestingly, the modern paperback edits out the last few paragraphs of the novel from the text found in the older hardcover - the paragraphs that introduce the next novel, the Case of the Curious Bride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian Clarke | 7/11/2013

    " Good early Perry Mason novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 DavidO | 3/21/2013

    " Perry Mason clearly crosses the line in this one, not quite the saint from the TV show. The antagonists are a bit weak because the more skilled cops/DA haven't been introduced yet. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian | 2/2/2013

    " Very racist, but it is fascinating to view America in the 1930's through this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete Roman | 9/15/2012

    " Maybe because it was one of his earlier works that the plot of the story was different. The story was great over-all. Must read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 8/13/2012

    " I'm willing to overlook the casual racism as being a product of its time, but the writing in this book is truly dreadful. Plot's good, as usual, but the prose is leaden. I also have the urge to silently drum my fingers on the nearest desk... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Apryl Anderson | 7/22/2012

    " Of course, we figured it out before he did, but we give him the credit for pulling it off so dramatically. This was a plain ole fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seth | 12/11/2011

    " It's a quick read. It's a fun, fast-paced detective mystery full of dialog, questions, and suspense. The novel shares some simple insights and tricks of a fictional star criminal trial lawyer named Perry Mason. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 10/25/2011

    " Another early Perry Mason. One of the plot clues I got, the rest left me baffled as usual. Would have given another star except for the degrading depiction of the Chinese cook. Probably acceptable for its day (1935), but outrageous now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Huma | 10/3/2011

About the Author
Author Erle Stanley Gardner

Erle Stanley Gardner (1889–1970) was a prolific American author best known for his works centered on the lawyer-detective Perry Mason. At the time of his death in March of 1970, in Ventura, California, Gardner was “the most widely read of all American writers” and “the most widely translated author in the world,” according to social historian Russell Nye. The first Perry Mason novel, The Case of The Velvet Claws, published in 1933, had sold twenty-eight million copies in its first fifteen years. In the mid-1950s, the Perry Mason novels were selling at the rate of twenty thousand copies a day. There have been several motion pictures based on his work and the hugely popular Perry Mason television series starring Raymond Burr aired for nine years—271 episodes.
