| Very well done but improbable
Excellent acting and high production values mark this and many other episodes of this fine series. I always love seeing Perry, Della, Paul Drake, Lt. Tragg, and Hamilton Burger. The trial judge was quite good on this episode. The actor who played George Lutts was especially good.

I won't summarize the plot, as others have done so. However, I do think it extremely unlikely that a shot from a 38 caliber pistol would be effective over the long distance demonstrated by the scene where Della waves from the hilltop. It's not clear how Mrs. Grainger's gun got involved in the crime. Also, not to reveal any spoilers, but the accomplices at the end seemed a rather unlikely pair.
