Horwitz Numbered Series #114
When the gaunt hood walked into the room and said "Charlie Sent me," and beat up Eddie Sackville, top-rated comedian, he started a chain of gruesome events for script writer Larry Baker which started with murder and finished with murder.....

Horwitz International Edition Series #46
TV write Larry Baker knows good lines when he sees them. In script. Or on a girl. But when somebody ad-libs an off screen murder, Larry sets out to prove he did not author the job. His search for a killer takes him to the bedrooms of a bevy of beauties, the plush apartment of a big time gangster, and a futuristic mansion that plays music to itself. A long playing dirge, a "Song of Death." Larry Baker is powerless to stop.
