    I believe Saber was actually Milton Ozaki, author of a good many pulpy mysteries better known for their goofiness than their literary quality. I remember his title Sucker Bait (which has a gorgeous Maguire cover) contained the show-stopping line, "she was kissing me like a french horn in reverse."  They just don't write 'em like that anymore.
