Sinner, You Slay Me! by Carter Brown

I'm stuck with the wife I haven't married and a murder I haven't committed

Reprinted By Demand Series

Squeak it was called. The hottest of the scandal mags. And Marcus Mouse had just got a job with them. Maybe it was an unfortunate coincidence that his name happened to be Mouse. Isobel, the girl he loved, thought he was more Mouse than Man. His first assignment was in Hollywood. His editor, Herman J. Herman, thought of everything. He even supplied him with a wife. One would expect a star like Lola Monterey who was currently disposing of her fourth and gazing starry-eyed at her fifth to be murdered, wouldn't you? Well she wasn't. But the murder centered around her. Of course there were other girlfriends, and just to make it cost, Isobel arrived on the scene. Mouse had told her he was not really married to Virginia, it wouldn't have helped, but then there was the second murder, with Marcus set up as the fall guy for it. He did not have time for dames any more, well, almost!
