Now his greedy relatives fear he's planning to throw his fortune away on a gold-digging spouse, Emily Milicant. So to prevent the two from joining in holy matrimony, they commit their affluent kin to a sanitarium on a trumped-up charge. Then Leeds escapes, only to end up in the company of Emily's blackmailing brother, John, a manufacturer of fixed Dice, rolling bones that always come up seven. But when John is murdered--with Leeds's fingerprints found all over the apartment--Perry Mason must crack a baffling case before his client bumps from the nuthouse to the jailhouse.Hide synopsis

In each forward, Erle Stanley Gardner writes an interesting, personal, and pertinant acknowledgement to a person he knows on some level who has made significant contribution(s) to solving crime in the real world. If any reader picks up a mystery by ES Gardner, do not skip over the forward.
I say the same about each book: that it is a shame that they are mostly out-of-print, Each one is gripping, interesting, and unpredictible. While not intellectual, they are a valid and uplifting contribution to reading for relaxation.
