The Cat and the Jill of Diamonds 

           Jill O'Rourke, brought up in the desert and tough as cactus, a sharpshooter, who plays poker professionally, is hired to provide a diversion (card playing) for a night club singer, Johnny Diamond.  When the singer's life is threatened, Midnight Louie brings Jill to him in time for a rescue from ugly Al Fresco's hit man.  Some treasure is discovered.

The Cat and the Jack of Spades

          A Gayle Tyson, a woman from Kansas, falls hard for a baccarat dealer in Vegas known as Solitaire.  When hit men come after Solitaire, her life is in danger, too.  He steals some roast beef from the kitchen of the Crystal Phoenix, a map from Van's office, and takes her for a wild ride into the desert to escape, and they discover the rest of the treasure.  Midnight Louie unjustly takes the blame for the missing roast beef and the map.  Solitaire finds out his real name.
