Reggie Lansfield is an aspiring actress Paul meets. She is game for stunts that will get her recognized so she is game to fill in for a famous woman swimmer who is too ill to swim. The stunt blows up with the woman killed and her charged.
Reggie Lansfield is a beautiful young woman who is prepared to pull any stunt to get recognition and make a bit of money. Paul meets her when he rescues her from a failed parachute jump and later returns a bracelet to her. She's approached by representatives of Victoria Dawn, herself a champion swimmer and someone who made a name for herself by swimming from Catalina to the coast 10 years before. Once they've satisfied themselves as to her swimming ability, they tell Reggie that she is to impersonate Victoria and swim from Catalina. It's all a publicity stunt to get Victoria's name in the papers again. Reggie agrees but, part way across, the boat that's accompanying her blows up, though the operator, Charlie Shaw, is not seriously hurt. Clearly, someone was meant to be killed in that explosion and when Victoria is found dead in her cottage at a rest home, Reggie is arrested. She was seen jumping out of Victoria's window by a nurse, after coming to see Victoria to get her pay. Perry Mason tries to get to the bottom of it all.
