Lead Astray by Carter Brown

Lead Astray

His favorite daydream features a beautiful dame who can't resist him any longer. So when it happens in reality, Charles Rain jumps to the obvious conclusion. Yeah, he is wrong. She wants Mr Rain to find a bunch of screwballs, a bunch of cadavers and trouble. Topaz is the jewel of the piece. He might have got somewhere with her if those gunshots had not kept interrupting. So Charles looks for privacy and finish up wearing an aqualung a hundred feet underwater. Even there hes got company. He decided the only way to get privacy is to catch the killer.
