The Case of the Drowsy Mosquito by Erle Stanley Gardner
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was surprised by how much more interesting Perry Mason was than the TV character. The character in the book reminded me of Archie Goodwin (from Nero Wolfe). I really enjoyed the story, the info about prospecting mines in the desert was interesting, and I loved the speeches about the important role of the defense attorney in the justice system. I will definitely be reading more of these.
