Blonde On The Rocks by Carter Brown

Someone tries to murder a top-talent actress' career and troubleshooter Rick Holman hires on to find out why. The only clue: her dead lover!

Robert McGinnis Cover #1
"They murdered me. They left the corpse stone-cold dead in the market, and didn't even worry about an obituary in the trade papers." In a small frozen voice the big-talent actress told Rick Holman how she has been unable to get any sort of a part in Hollywood for the past six months. Someone had been very successful in blacklisting her. She wanted to know who and why.

Negligee-clad Della August was as seductively torrid as her last name. So troubleshooter Rick Holman jumped at the chance to help her by playing hero. Little did he guess that he would turn out fall guy in a drama where passion was the curtain opener on death.

Robert McGinnis Cover #2
Why was the once famous blonde movie star now living in seclusion?
How had the rising young actor met his sudden death by a genuine car accident or murder?
Where was the red-headed model who'd been his companion in the car?
Who was the unseen movie tycoon fighting an investigation every inch of the way?

If show business detective Rick Holman came up with the right answers on this case, his jackpot prize was a killer!!
