House Of Sorcery by Carter Brown

Meet Maxine, a hot blooded tycoon with a perfumed proposition for Danny Boyd.
A private eye who will do almost anything for the sweet smell of success.

Robert McGinnis Cover
The Aroma of Death
kept wafting private eye Danny Boyd's way with a persistence that should have convinced him to drop the scent, and his latest client as well. But voluptuous, wealthy Maxine Lord, president of House of Sorcery perfumes, kept Danny Boyd spellbound with an offer he just could not resist. The buxom beauty had a special appeal all her own, and the smell of all the crisp green bills in her hand helped to deaden his senses to the dangers he would face.

That is until he stumbled on a series if way put double crosses that really stank. Then suddenly Danny and Maxine were playing for high stakes in a game where the loser paid in blood, and it looked like all their cards were turning up spades.
