Murder Is A Package Deal by Carter Brown

A Hollywood screen siren hires Rick Holman to scare off an almost ex-husband
who's out to make a killing in the blackmail business.

Fabrielle Frye was engaged to a millionaire and about to make a comeback as a big time star. Then the man she married four years before, the husband who had disappeared after two nights of a hectic honeymoon, turned up with an offer. Divorce, for a a million dollars.

Gilda was a doll. She had long, lank hair. leering eyes, and a scarlet twist of a mouth. She was six feet tall and stuffed with sawdust from head to toe. Everywhere the movie queen went, Gilda went too. 

Horwitz Reprint
 Hollywood Trouble Shooter Rick Holman smashes into a setup as macabre as an old fashion horror film when he unwinds a murderous plot with a weird cast of characters. Enraged magnates, wildly willing babes, surprised corpses, and a strangely, malevolent, ever present rag doll.
