Seidlitz And The Super-Spy by Carter Brown

Catch a falling corpse,
throw a curve at a playboy prince, 
and flirt with espionage,
Mavis style.

Robert McGinnis Cover
Mavis Seidlitz
She is the grooviest private eye in the business. A dedicated asset to the squad of LA's Rio investigations. Topnotch in the numbers game (38-23-37). Hotshot in the dope racket. Sexpert in the art of self defense. A kitteny mankiller who learns the hard way that is is what's up front that counts.

So what is a nice girl like Mavis doing in an orgy at Carla's place in Capri? It's blackmail! A girl can't even take a vacation in Rome, France, without getting caught up in  an embarrassing situation with somebody else's corpse, a secret service agent, and an oil rich prince named Harry who just love blondes (38-23-37).

Mavis is trapped. Game for a philandering prince and a knife throwing cutup. A luscious target for murder. A swinging detective about  to be axed to the Party Of The Year.
