Sweetheart This is Homicide by Carter Brown

Sweetheart This is Homicide
Cover by David Franklin
From the time he saw the blonde on the beach next door he knew there was going to be trouble. Hugo Dorland had retired to Long Beach for the quiet life to enjoy the quarter of a million he had picked up on a horse's nose. Trouble was it was Syndicate money and a charming character named Dogface Moreno intended getting back. Whether he got it back over Hugo's dead body was incidental to him. Along with the blonde next door was a walrus and a juvenile delinquent who would have been  funny if he hadn't been a dead shot. Then there was Lorelei Jones who sand "Baby It's Cold Outside" while she raised the temperature to boiling point inside by doing a strip to the music. Hugo nearly forgot, there was a murder and the shots in the night and Starlight, the fighter, and the bodies that came in with the tide. It's the sort of vacation everybody should have...once!
