The Lady Is/Not Available by Carter Brown

She was the most talented pro in the whole art colony. Her sex appeal was sheer genius and pure murder!

Horwitz 1st Printing
Bella made friends at the drop of a bikini. She was a beautiful Bohemian who wore the scantiest of bathing suits when she painted, and less when she entertained. Her uninhibited hospitality made it hard for Lieutenant Al Wheeler to keep business before pleasure. But he was a cop and he was there to ask questions about a murder.

Signet 3rd Printing
An artist dies violently and Al Wheeler begins a deadly and dangerous case. A case that leads from an artist's studio to a tycoon's plush penthouse office. From a lovely wanton to a strait-laced society wife. From a mysterious picture to multiple death.

Horwitz Reprint

Who painted the lady without her clothes? When an oil tycoon commissions a young artist to do his wife's portrait, he hardly expected to see the finished product, perfect, pink-fleshed...and nude. It was too late for explanations. The artist lay dead beneath the easel, the picture was slashed with a cross of blood and the hysterical wife insisted she never took off her clothes.
