The Seductress by Carter Brown

One look at her and Danny Boyd knew that a blonde with her kind of eyes would be...murder!!!

Horwitz Edition 
 Through the half-open bedroom door Danny Boyd glimpsed a gorgeous pair of legs. One neatly clad in sheer nylon and a high-heeled shoe, the other naked and barefoot. He walked in and saw the blonde lying on the bed. She was everything the first tantalizing view had promised. Sultry. Seductive. Scintillating. And they were alone together. Only one thing was wrong. Now he knew the reason for her one bare leg. Someone had wrapped the missing nylon tight around her pretty throat.

Robert McGinnis Cover
A beautiful blonde runaway: Her big-wheel uncle finally checked out her ID, in the morgue.
A statuesque brunette: She'd fallen hard for an ex-movie idol who threw the wildest parties in plush Santo Bahia.

A magnificent redhead: She was just what Danny Boyd had been looking for. And she played him for a sucker.

Before he finds out who has organized him into a neat murder frame, debonair Danny Boyd, the tough private eye with the super ego, is provoked into dangerous fun and games with guns and dames. And uncovers a dope scandal that's a killer!
