There are two stories in this book, shortened (edited) versions of the
the King of Clubs and the Cat and the Queen of Hearts.
Cat and the King of Clubs
This story tells about Nicky Fontana and his quest for 'class'. He hires Van
Von Rhine to help him remodel his hotel, the Joshua Tree, and turn it into the
Crystal Phoenix. Midnight Louie brings help to rescue the Hotel from thugs
hired by ugly Al Fresco.
The Cat and the Queen of Hearts
A Vegas showgirl. Darcy McGill, who loves to dance, but also likes to write,
is falling in love with her prudish professor, Stevenson Eliot Austen. He
likes her writing, and tries to help her. She pretends to be her make
believe sister and seduces him (what a lucky guy!). She is later kidnapped
by a sheik and Midnight Louie points the way for her rescue.
