The Mistress by Carter Brown

She's a stripper stacked for love at a gambling joint where the odds are stacked for murder

1969 Horwitz Edition
It was a plush Las Vegas gambling joint with dice tables at the rear and a well stacked stripper out front. The stripper's name was Gabrielle and she played taps for three corpses. When Al Wheeler came to the scene he figured he hit it lucky. Because there was nothing he enjoyed more than a murder case that gave him a chance to get down to facts. Bare facts that is. Free wheeling Al Wheeler, the unorthodox cop. matched wits with a stripper and the syndicate. The stakes are high as he bets his life that he can beat a killer at the game of murder.
