Lament For A Lousy Lover by Carter Brown

When tough cop Al Wheeler clashes with curvy consultant Mavis Seidlitz, the results are murder!

Horwitz Edition
When the villain took aim, it did not turn out like the movies. The hero fell down really dead. So Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler had an unrehearsed corpse on his hands and that was the least of his worries. There was the fiery female star, built like a man-trap. The brooding, blue-chinned heavy. The frantic film producer. The scheming sponsor....And Mavis Seidlitz! That wacky, yacky dame had some hot leads on homicide and hotter plans for Al Wheeler!
