Erle Stanely Gardner, The Case of the Drowsy Mosquito (1943)

Perry Mason and trusty Paul sort out a mining scam and a mysterious murder. Della Street helps. A good deal of the action takes place in the California desert, which Gardner was obviously very familiar with. Someone mentioned recently he'd written nonfiction on the subject, I think.

Crusty old prospectors, suspicious employees, untrustworthy relatives, and quite a few fast legal manoeuvres with documents being signed, hidden, found, and so on, make for a very satisfying read.
