No Future Fair Lady by Carter Brown

1958 First Edition
Jerry Chase is the main character of this Carter Brown tale. He is on the staff of a magazine called SMEAR. His assignment is to prove eggheads make the best lovers by registering with Happy Honeymoons Inc. Happy Honeymoons was a neat little organization that catered  to an exclusive clientele. Mr Chase had been writing crime for three years until he accepted the new position at twice the salary. As the story goes, Chase meets not one lady but two ladies, the only problem was they were both dead. He knew something was fishy as the cops were breathing down his neck. Blackmail was the game and it all leads back to where it started. Chase comes out on top. No Future Fair Lady is No. 59 in the Numbered Series and was published in 1958 by Horwitz.
