Catch Me A Phoenix! by Carter Brown

Danny Boyd goes to London to meet a black-haired bombshell and to help a tawny-eyed blonde grab a pair of priceless antiques and finds his assignment is....murder.

Horwitz Edition
"They don't speak English in England!"
So thought Danny Boyd when he met a black-haired London bombshell who free-wheeled a juggernaut through the quiet English countryside.... She talked about ponces, and birds, and skivvies, and layouts...whatever they were!

But then the hell-raking brunette took off her shiny leather shirt...she took off her black sweater...she stood there in her glistening black boots and black garters...and Danny, jet-propelled, crashed through the language barrier!

It came to London via Bill Donavan. He invited a small select group to bid for it. They had nothing in common, except a seven figure bank account and the lust for the treasure. And they will stop at nothing to get it, well almost anything! When Sharon O'Bryne, the breath-taking blonde with break-taking ideas, was sent to London to buy the antique, she took along Danny Boyd for protection.
