Gardner, Erle Stanley, #8 The Case of the Sleepwalker's Niece

Criminal lawyer and bestselling mystery author Erle Stanley Gardner wrote nearly 150 novels that have sold 300 million copies worldwide. Now, the American Bar Association is bringing back his most famous and enduring novels―featuring criminal defense lawyer and sleuth Perry Mason―in striking trade paperback editions.

Peter Kent was known to be a sleepwalker. So when Philip Rease turns up dead at a house party and a bloody knife is found under Kent's pillow, it seems like an open-and-shut case. But there are people who'd like to see both Kent and Rease out of the way for their own nefarious reasons, and Perry Mason finds himself in a case fill of twists and traps.
