The Dream Is Deadly by Carter Brown

US, Canada, and UK Cover by Barye Phillips
 Every night the gorgeous actress went insane to the staccato beat of an audience's applause. She ran the gamut of emotions in three acts. She laughed. she cried, she threatened, she pleaded. Then one weekend, at a posh party, she topped any performance she has ever given. She vanished without a trace for two years.

Signet 3rd Printing

A hot shot publisher hired Danny Boyd, the dashing and debonair private eye, to find out why the beautiful blonde was a dead issue and how she had disappeared. Boyd's investigation leads him headlong into a cast of oddball characters including a temperamental producer, a wanton redhead, a willing receptionist, and a plug-ugly killer, expert at calling the shots.
