Series Premiere. Los Angeles, 1931. On the heels of a distasteful investigation involving a famous comedian, Perry Mason – a PI struggling to make ends meet – and his right-hand man Pete Strickland are hired by lawyer EB Jonathan, Perry’s mentor, to solve a confusing case: the brutal kidnapping of one-year-old Charlie Dodson, whose parents Matthew and Emily were targeted for a ransom of $ 100,000. After meeting with Herman Baggerly, a millionaire elder at Dodsons’ church, Perry, EB and EB’s legal secretary Della Street pondered why a family with unmistakably modest funds would be blackmailed for such a steep price.
