Some Look Better Dead by Hank Janson

A seemingly innocuous visit to a fashion show leads Chicago Chronicle's ace reporter Hank Janson into a web of  murder and intrigue with dark secrets from the past. Uncovering a disturbing scenario of sexual obsession and violence, he starts to realize that this one assignment to which there can be no easy answers, and no happy ending.

The Hank Janson pulp paperback novels were a British publishing sensation in the 1940s and 1950s. Selling millions of copies. With the erotic pun up covers and hardboiled crime tales, readers craved the escapism from the post war austerity.
