POISON, POKER & PISTOLS

Voluble and brash, Margaret Slone, reporter, is instrumental in tagging the death of Dr. McGowan, Lothario with toxicology as his hobby, as unnatural, caused by poison, and murder. She is bellweather for all New Orleans police, does not stay slapped down, but is never an innocent bystander in the subsequent three killings. Between all her fights -- with her City Editor, the police, her family, the Lothario's jealous women- and her avant-garde knowledge, she happens on the solution by an exercise in alliteration, acts as live bait to get a confession. Overexuberant.
