Summary
  • Hard to handle: Con leads to con when the prize money for a rigged dance marathon is stolen
  • Ladies they talk about: Nan Taylor, caught after an otherwise successful bank robbery, falls for radio crusader David Slade and confides her guilt to him. Much to her surprise, he turns her in. As a "new fish" at San Quentin, Nan fits right in, but won't see Slade, who still loves her. Then she learns that her former partners in crime, Don and Dutch, are on the other side of the wall in the men's section and have an escape plan,
  • The mind reader: Con man "Chandra" pretends to be clairvoyant, but his girlfriend wants him to go straight
  • Miss Pinkerton: Scion of the once-rich Mitchell family, Herbert Wynn is found shot to death. Nurse Adams, bored by hospital routine, is recruited by the police to ferret out clues as she tends to Wynn's elderly aunt Julia. Jokingly given the 'rank' of Miss Pinkerson, after the famous detective agency, Adams probes into the mystery, but not before a second death
