She was a beautiful belly dancer and her swinging ways nearly sent Danny Boyd to an early grave!

The Dangerous Dames

Selina: The slave girl who was top prize in a poker game, winner take all.

New English Library Edition
Danny Boyd always enjoyed games with dames, but this time he was in a race to recover some hot diamonds, with a crew of killers at his heels. And it was much too dangerous to dally. Especially when someone had plans for the hardworking detective, plans began with houris and ended with homicide. 

Robert McGinnis Cover
 She wore transparent silks and brass bangles. Her master sat in the middle of the floor puffing on a hookah. He wore silver-painted toenails. It wasn't Xanadu, it was Sutton Place, New York City. Danny Boyd dives into "Arabian Nights" as he traces smuggled gems and a kidnapped beauty, and is nearly outwitted by an inscrutable crime king who deals in Occidental death.
