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 nut house to the jail house....
