Girl in A Shroud by Carter Brown

When a sexy spook scares up a case of murder, Al Wheeler finds himself in trouble...six feet deep!

Horwitz Edition
When Lieutenant  Al Wheeler is called to investigate the unexpected body in a mortuary, he finds a shapely brunette, very much alive. Her unorthodox behavior rocks the unorthodox cop but the subsequent  appearance of a genuine corpse and the disappearance of a quarter of a million dollars from a guarded bank vault sends him hot on the trail of murder!

Robert McGinnis Cover
She was just another corpse in a casket, until she smiled. Her black shroud was diaphanous. Her eyes were dangerous. And she wasn't dead at all!. A hysterical undertaker finds an unidentified body laid out in one of his best coffins and summons Al Wheeler out of a deep sleep and into a walking nightmare. A nightmare that includes a murdered M.D., an ex-addict psychiatrist, a hypnotic blonde, and a sexy tease who flirts with death!
