|September 26,1965  "The
Case of the Candy Queen"
Her business is good, her motto is "Eat sweet and thin," but life is not all sweetness for the beautiful "Candy Queen," Claire Armstrong. Mark Chester, Claire's boyfriend, has stolen her inherited candy formula to pay back his gambling debts. Her cousin Wanda helps frame Claire for murdering blackmailer Harry Arnold.
This sticky case is one of Perry's favorites. This is the time where he investigates Claire's candy factory, nibbles for clues, and has the real murderer eating out of his hand in the courtroom.
And remember Paul trying to give Claire a box of candy at the airport to impress her?
