Angel! by Carter Brown

Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler meets a blonde tease whose good-luck charms are murder!

Horwitz Edition 
Angel was 100% female, she was the answer to every mans dream. Beside her, even Venus took second place. One minute with Angel and Al Wheeler actually found himself enjoying the fact he had been sent to check out a routine traffic complaint. Five minutes with Angel and Al knew he was in for the right place, at the right time, with the right girl. Because in those five minutes, Wheeler had become a witness to murder.

Joy Ride to Death
The murder victim was the wrong man. The ex-jet flier took up the plane out of turn. And because he did, he died.out of turn. All the evidence there was disintegrated in mid-air with the exploding plane. The mourners  included six prime suspects: Three other ex-jet jockeys, ex-buddies of the murderer man, an airplane mechanic with a grudge, and two delectable dolls, one of whom was the intended victim's wife, the other his current "girl of the week".
