The Temptress (Revised) by Carter Brown

She's a saucy seductress worth three million dollars

A good catch for a killer.

Grant Roberts Cover
        Murder is just a pretty word to:

The teen-age heiress who prefers ex-cons to college boys.
The society mother who wants the police to lock up her wayward daughter on a morals charge.
The millionaire who buys the favors of high-school girls.
The piano player who runs a profitable business on the side.
Ron Lesser Cover
  But to Police Lieutenant Al Wheeler murder means business. Dirty business. One of this lethal crew bashed in the skull of a peeping private eye and Al is out for blood. A killer's blood!

  1. Scott - Lots of different interpretations here. For some reason the New American Library cover strikes me as most appealing.
