The Dream Merchant by Carter Brown

With a hot-blooded honey and a cooled-down corpse, 
Al Wheeler faces the craziest killer of his whole career....!

International Edition
 "You're next, you bitch!"
It was just an average crank note found in a beautiful blonde's apartment. the only difference was that this kook left his message plastered on a real dead body. And it was up to Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler to pin the crime on the killer.But who would want to murder private eye Nathan Lloyd and leave him in his secretary's closet? Certainly not secretary Julie! Rumor had it she'd love her boss above and beyond the cal of duty, and besides, according to the note, she was next on the list. How about the jealous wife? She was too busy bouncing from bed to bed to be bothered, wasn't she? What about Nathan's partner? No, he was happily occupied with the grieving widow long before Nathan's brain was blown out.

And that left Al exactly where he had started. With a long list of suspects and a mysterious maniac on the loose who just might plug a few more people full of lead if he was not caught in time...
