The Passionate by Carter Brown

Twin temptresses out for kicks any way they come, including shrunken heads, corpses,and lady killers.

1959 Horwitz Edition
Rival For A Corpse
The sizzling brunette collected shrunken heads but she offered Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler five thousand dollars to bring her the live heart of her ex-husband. The torrid redhead collected men and she offered Al.... her pretty self. The girls were twin sisters. Each in her own seductive way was trying to take Al's mind off their matching set of corpses. But Wheeler wasn't buying their brand of pleasure, not while he still suspects that their trademark was murder.
