BEGIN IN LAUGHTER by Martha Ellen Wright


Email this review


Just for a laugh, sheltered, shy and spiritless Ellen decides to take on the alias and personality of a Nola, a Nola game for anything. It is as Nola that she wins the love of rolling-stone Irish Don Lazero, who thought up the idea. She marries him and he gives her just what she wanted. He is pursued and almost killed by a gang of crooked gamblers, who want to install loaded tables in the nightclub Don runs for his half-brother, Colin; eventually, he is accused of the murder of Colin, who has doublecrossed him, as Nola has suspected. There is a trial and acquittal which -- while giving Nola a good case of burnt fingers, proves her real love and loyalty to Don. Straight from the glue factory this.
